• Private Duty Nursing

    Judson ISD provides school nursing and school health services for students on all campuses. The District has campus clinic personnel comprised of Registered Nurses (RNs), Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs) and Clinic Health Assistants to provide such services. Due to the complex medical needs of some students, parents may wish to waive the district school nurse and school health services that are required as part of a student’s Section 504 Plan or an Individualized Education Program (IEP). In the event a parent wishes to utilize their own private duty nurse, the parent(s) are financially responsible for this nursing care.

    It is the District’s goal to work together to provide the best and safest educational experience for all students. To provide clear guidelines and expectations of students on campus receiving private duty nursing services, refer to the Judson ISD Private Duty Nurse (PDN) Guidelines for information.
