School Telehealth Programs use registered nurses (RNs) working under physician standing
orders to provide high quality, comprehensive health care to students while they are at school.
For care that is needed beyond what a RN can provide, they use specialized video and audio
connections to link youth at the school clinic to primary care providers located in a pediatric or
school-based health center in their community.
