School Nurse's Corner
My name is Brittany Kaczor and I am the Registered Nurse for Okatie Elementary school. I have been a nurse for 8 years which half of those years have been in the pediatric specialty. I see students and staff for multiple reasons including; fever, cough, ear pain, sore throat, daily medications, acute and chronic illnesses, vision and hearing screenings, scrapes and emergencies. I also see students if parents request for their child to be seen to determine the next steps of their child’s care. Parents can contact me by phone, 843-322-7791 or by email.
School nursing, a specialized practice of nursing, protects and promotes student health, facilitates optimal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders who bridge health care and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potential.
