SCHOOL NURSE DEFINITION

 

 

The National Association of School Nurses defines school nursing as:

  

 

    A specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success, and lifelong achievement of students. To that end, 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 staff and community to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy, healthly outcomes and life long learning.
