Wellbeing and Health In-Reach Nurse Coordinators (WHINs)

The Wellbeing and Health In-Reach Nurse Coordinator (WHIN) program is a partnership between NSW Health and NSW Department of Education. WHINs are co-located within schools in western Sydney and work closely with the school’s wellbeing and learning and support teams. The underlying assumption is that improved access to health care will improve student health and wellbeing, which will support improved educational outcomes and engagement.
