The WISHeS Project is a statewide collaborative project aimed at improving school health services in Wisconsin public schools. The Wisconsin Public Health Association (WPHA) and the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) were awarded a 5 year grant by the Healthier Wisconsin Partnership Program, a component of the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin endowment at the Medical College of Wisconsin. The goals of the WISHeS project are to improve the capacity of Wisconsin school districts and increase the competency of the individuals providing health services in those schools. The project is accomplishing those goals through the development a School Health Services Assessment Tool that evaluates the status of school health services in Wisconsin and the creation of tools and resources to meet needs identified through the assessment. The resources developed as a result of the assessment will ultimately benefit school children who are greatly impacted by the decisions that schools make.
The School Nurse Procedure Website is one of the resources developed by the WISHeS project. To learn about the other resources and tools developed by the WISHeS project, click here.
