    Goals of the School Health Services Program:

    "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."
      National Association of School Nurses, 2010.


    "The School Nurse has a crucial role in the seamless provision of

    comprehensive health services to children and youth. The role of the School Nurse is serving as a team member in providing preventive services, early identification of problems, interventions, and referrals to foster health and educational success."
