School of Nursing to Offer
MAILED: Sept. 10, 1998|
The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire School of Nursing will offer free health evaluation clinics for infant through middle-school-aged children in February 1999.
Clinics include a physical assessment, developmental screening, nutrition assessment, vision and hearing screening and a review of the child's health history. Children age 3 and up will receive urine testing.
Nursing graduate students conduct the clinics under the supervision of certified nurse practitioners. Supervisors will be available to sign physical examination forms for preschool, day care, kindergarten or camp.
Referrals are made to appropriate resources as necessary.
Students may follow the clinics with home visits during the fall semester to provide a summary of clinic findings and provide information on health and development topics.
The clinics are paced to allow explanation of procedures to the child to make it a positive health care experience for the children. Parents should allow about two hours for the screening.
Appointments are limited. To make an appointment, call (715) 836-5515.
