PSEA Department of Pupil Services

School Nurse
PSEA's Department of Pupil Services (DPS) supports members in a variety of professions, including School Dental Hygienists, School Counselors, Home and School Visitors/School Social Workers, School Nurses and School Psychologists.

DPS members are also members of local associations in their respective school districts. DPS encourages professional growth and development for its members, advances public education and promotes cooperation with other groups in education and the community for the best services to youth.

Take Action
Some state legislators want to allow non-medical personnel to provide diabetes care and management to students – including the administration of insulin. The state House Health voted on Monday to send this bill to the House floor.


House Bill 1625 puts student health at risk. When a child goes into diabetic crisis, he or she needs a trained medical professional to help them. Knowing how to assess a child's condition and administer treatment can make the difference between life and death.

Email your state representative today to ask him or her to oppose House Bill 1625.
