J Lloyd Crowe Secondary Primary Care Clinic
We are aware of the challenges that many of our students and their families face in accessing health care. To address the needs of our students, we will continue to provide the services of a Nurse Practitioner at Crowe’s Primary Care Clinic.
A licensed Nurse Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Nursing and a family Nurse Practitioner designation visits JLC every second Thursday. A Nurse Practitioner has an expanded health care role. They can support a range of health concerns such as:
- General questions
- Order blood work
- Specialist referrals
- Treat minor infections
- Perform pregnancy tests
- Birth control prescriptions
- Screen for venereal diseases
- Initial management and assessment for anxiety and depression
Our nurse practitioner at JLCrowe is Ms. Melissa Mailey who holds a Masters in Nursing and is a former graduate of JL Crowe. Appointments can be made with Child/Youth Care Worker, Mrs. Bridget Ferraro, in room 212.
If parents have concerns about whether or not they will be informed about the health care their child is seeking or receiving at this onsite clinic, then they should ask their child not to attend the clinic being held at JLC. The School District will have no information about the services being provided to the youth nor can the school provide information about if/when the child attended the clinic. While the clinic is being hosted at JLC, the school nor the district is responsible for the services being provided within IHA’s onsite clinic. If you have any questions in regards to the clinic, please don’t hesitate to contact the school 250.368.5591, ext. 132.
