The Northwest Academy nursing staff is on campus Monday through Friday during business hours, and is on call evenings and weekends.
Upon enrollment to our therapeutic boarding school, students receive a comprehensive medical assessment, conducted by a Northwest Academy nurse. Throughout every student’s stay, our nursing team is responsible for medication management. All medications are dispensed by a nurse or by a trained staff member.
For specialized needs, we work closely with area doctors, dentists, orthodontists, optometrists and other specialists as needed. In an emergency, medical services are available at either Boundary County Community Hospital (approximately seven miles from our campus) or Bonner General Hospital in Sandpoint (approximately 25 miles).
Psychiatric care is provided by a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist who is scheduled for regular visits to our campus.
