The IMESD Nursing Program provides services for districts by helping to clearly identify the healthcare needs of special education and regular education students on a 504 Plan (birth through 21 years). These include students with special health needs such as seizures, asthma, severe allergies (food, insect bites, etc.) diabetes, shunts, gastrostomy tubes, tracheotomies or catheterizations.

The nurse writes medical protocols and health management plans with input from parents and physicians and provides training to staff about those plans. This ensures that school staff members understand the medical needs of children and know what to do in an emergency.

The Consulting Nurse Referral and Medical Release of Information forms are both required for referral for nursing services through IMESD:
