Will More Nurses in Hawaii Schools Help Keep Kids In Class?

At Nanakuli Elementary School on Oahu’s Leeward Coast, a small on-site health clinic staffed by a registered nurse is part of a new strategy to help stem the school’s high chronic absenteeism rate.

Schools in the Nanakuli-Waianae area bear some of the state’s highest rates of chronic absenteeism, defined as when a student is absent 15 or more school days during the year.

Officials believe student health concerns play a major role in kids missing school. Common health issues among students on the Leeward Coast range from asthma to severe allergies. Those ailments are often triggered by vog, a type of air pollution.

“Parents will initially keep their kids home if they notice any respiratory distress,” said Karisa Deitch, a registered nurse who has been based at Nanakuli since last year.  “They’ll take off work and keep the child home … which impacts their education.”

Deitch was hired through the “ Hawaii Keiki: Healthy and Ready to Learn ” program, which launched in 2014 by placing nurses with advanced training in five pilot complex areas. Although each of the 256 public schools in the state has access to a school health aide, these aides are limited to administering first-aid and CPR.
