What is Hawai’i Keiki?
This Healthy and Ready to Learn program offers school based health services by a Nurse Practitioner made possible through a collaborative partnership between University of Hawai’i-Mānoa Nursing and the Hawai’i State Department of Education. The Hawai’i Keiki Nurse works alongside the SHA. Students who do not have health insurance are still able to receive care from a Hawai’i Keiki Nurse. Parental permission (consent) is required for a child to receive health services from the Nurse Practitioner.
