What is School Nursing?

"School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well being, academic success, and life-long achievement and health of students.



To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety, including a healthy environment; 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."  (NASN, 2010.)
