Section 3 – Individualized Health Care Plans (IHPs) & Emergency Care Plans (ECPs)

The assessment of the student population, the development and implementation of appropriate individualized health care plans, and emergency care plans is one of the highest priorities of the school nurse. This process includes identification of students with health concerns, assessment of those students (including communication with parents, students, health care providers and others), development of plans, dissemination and implementation (including training, delegation, when appropriate, supervision and ongoing evaluation).
