The Healthcare Access at School (HAAS) Clinical Nurse Consultant is responsible for the quality and safety of clinical care provided by the Healthcare Access at School Program. The position sits in the School Services Team and works closely with the Clinical Nurse Manager.

The registered nurse completes a full health needs assessment and develops a healthcare plan in partnership with the parents and other health providers as needed. School staff are then trained in the health tasks and are assessed for competence by the registered nurse. The registered nurse provides ongoing support to the student, school and parents.
