"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."
