Megan Benthall, RN
Welcome to my site! This site will link you to school medication forms and general health information. I'm here as a resource for your student's health needs, so please feel free to contact me with any questions; I'm available by phone or email.
This is my eleventh year of nursing and second year as a school nurse. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Oklahoma and graduate degree from Texas Tech University. I'm proud to be part of the Mustang family and look forward to getting to know you.
School nursing is a professional registered nursing specialty that involves identification, assessment, prevention, and intervention to remedy or modify students' health needs. The nurse's goal is to promote the optimum health of students and the students' abilities to achieve their individual educational goals.
Nurses monitor required immunizations, perform mandated health screenings, track communicable diseases, plan for emergencies and provide direct care to students. Please use the links to the left to learn more about the Hays CISD District Health Services.
We would like to assure you that medical information about your child is treated as confidential by the nurses and all school staff. We do not share information about your child with outside parties nor can we discuss health concerns of any other student with you.
