The counselor works directly with students individually, in small groups, and in the classroom. The counselor consults with parents, teachers, school administrators, and other professional and community service providers in a cooperative effort to meet the needs of students.

- School Guidance Curriculum: Academic skills support, organizational, study and test taking skills, education in understanding self and others, coping strategies, peer relationships and social skills, communication, problem-solving, decision-making and conflict resolution, career awareness and exploration, diversity awareness, and health and safety concerns.
- Individual Student Planning: Advisement, goal setting and decision-making, academic planning, placement, referral and follow-up, career planning, and transition planning.
- Responsive Services: Individual and small group counseling, individual/family/school crisis intervention, peer facilitation, consultation/collaboration and referrals.

School nurses work to maximize each student's potential to learn and grow by providing the best possible health care. They are responsible for protecting and promoting the health of all students. School nurses are health care professionals who work with other school personnel to plan and carry out a total school health program.
In most cases, school nurses can consult with staff regarding students, observe and have contact with students, and provide follow-up services without a formal referral or consent. Special assessments and interventions may require parental consent.
