School Nurse and Student Health Information

Students must be HEALTHY to be educated and EDUCATED to be healthy

A student’s health is directly related to his or her ability to learn. Children with unmet health needs may have a difficult time engaging in the educational process.  The school nurse supports student success by providing health care through assessment, intervention and follow-up for all children within the school setting.  The school nurse addresses the physical, mental, emotional and social health needs of the students and supports their achievements in the learning process.

Definition of School Nursing

School nursing, a specialized practice of nursing, protects and promotes student health, facilitates optimal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders who 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 potential. Adopted by the NASN Board of Directors February 2017
