What do School Nurses do?

 

We work with preventive health care and provide health counseling for students.

We are under oath of professional secrecy, however, if you are under the age of 18 and we are concerned about your health and well-being, your parents may be informed. Please note that no contact with your parents will be made without first consulting you. 

If something happens during school hours, you are always welcome to visit the Student Welfare Team. The School nurses are happy to help you with minor injuries and ailments. If your condition is more serious please refer to the closest medical centre or hospital. If you are unsure about whether or not you need to visit the hospital, you can always ask the school nurses for advice.

Student Health Talks

All year 1 students are invited to a Health Talk with the school nurse during their first year at Kungsholmen. We will help you understand simple correlations between how we live our lives and how we feel, and also how you can deal with minor health issues on your own.

Some health problems are hard to detect on your own, and can be difficult to deal with, such as headaches, poor appetite and sleep problems.

We will also ask you to fill in a health screening questionnaire, with general questions about your health, in order to better understand your personal medical needs.
