Department of Education and Training (DET) aims to ensure that every young
person, including those with disabilities and/or specialised health needs, will
be well prepared for life success through learning and education. The
Department employs Registered Nurses (SSRNs) to work in state schools, and
assist school personnel to safely administer and manage the health needs of
students with a verified disability and/or specialised health need, enabling
their participation in an educational program.
State Schools Registered Nurses work in partnership with Red Hill Special
School staff to safely manage the health needs of our students with specialised
needs. Working with staff in our school, the registered nurses help
manage our students by:
individual students’ health needs
individualised health and emergency plans
competency based training for school staff to meet the individual students’
support and advice for students, parents and school staff.
based at Red Hill Special School also provide a service to other state schools
in the greater Brisbane area on the basis of referral.
