The School Nurse
School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well being,
academic success, and life-long 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
others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy, and
learning. (NASN, 1999)
