• OVERVIEW

    The National Association of School Nurses defines School Nursing as a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success and life-long achievement of students. School nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy and learning.

    School nurses support student success in the following ways:

    • Ensure that all students are properly immunized
    • Provide health screenings
    • Assess and treat acute illnesses and injuries
    • Provide emergency care
    • Manage chronic health conditions in the school setting
    • Administer medications and carry out medical procedures
    • Help students develop positive life-style choices
    • Assist faculty and staff to make health-related adaptations to the school program
    • Assist families to gain access to community health care programs
    • Promote a safe school environment
    • Serve as a resource to faculty, administration and students
    • Promote health-related educational programs for students, staff and families
