Implementation manual and tipsheets

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.
