Definition of School Nursing

School nursing, a specialized practice of nursing, protects and promotes school 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.
