"You cannot educate a child who is not healthy, and you cannot keep a child healthy who is not educated." This statement by the former US Surgeon General Jocelyn Elders, MD, clearly illustrates the very essence of the school nurse's mission.

Our Medical Office mission statement: In order to promote the educational development of your child, both mentally and physically, the North Bergen Board of Education has established a modern Health Service Department. It is the policy of this department to stress the healthful aspects of living and the prevention of illness and disease.
