Students visiting the West Pender Middle School location are greeted by a nurse who performs their exam. Video cameras then allow the nurse practitioner to then see a live feed of the patient and what the nurse on site is examining. Cameras can provide an up close and clear look at the patient's ears, eyes, throat or any rashes.

Thanks to a recent grant, parents of students at six different Burke County schools will no longer have to take their sick student out of school to visit a doctor if they choose.
