Health Services/ Immunizations Requirements


School Health Services


Pasadena ISD values students and their health.  In Pasadena ISD, you will find a Registered Nurse on each campus.  The goal of the school nurse is to assist all students to maintain their health and support their success in school.


In Pasadena ISD, in addition to possessing their RN certification, all of the school nurses are trained by the experienced lead nurses in the identification, assessment, prevention, and intervention to remedy or modify students' health needs.

On each campus, the nurse is responsible for checking the required immunizations, performing the state required health screenings, and keeping the lines of communication open with the students' parents when needed.








The school health program exists because our community cares about the health of its children.  The purpose of the school is to educate. Students cannot achieve at their highest potential – sometimes they cannot learn at all – if they have health needs which are not being met.


The primary focus of school nursing is to make sure learning is not hindered by a correctable health problem and to help educate students toward worthwhile decisions affecting present and future physical, social and emotional health.


Our goal must be to educate students toward a high level of “wellness”.  Many of our present and future health problems can be prevented through learning the proper care of mind and body.  Our task is to assist administrators, teachers, and all other support personnel in helping each student achieve his or her optimum potential in a comfortable, caring school climate.
