School Nurses in the News


NASN’s  updated definition of School Nursing:

School nursing, a specialized practice of public health nursing, protects and promotes student health, facilitates normal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders that bridge health care and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potentials.

Approved by the NASN Board of Directors June 2016.

American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Policy Statement calls for a full-time nurse in every school. The full policy statement, Role of the School Nurse in Providing School Health Services, was released on-line and will be printed in the June issue of Pediatrics.
