School Nursing Practice: Roles and Standards.
Proctor, Susan Tonskemper; And Others
This document is an application of the American Nurses' Association's (ANA's) "Standards of Clinical Nursing Practice" (1991) to the specialty of school nursing. It identifies specialty standards of practice for the school nurse subsumed under the standards of clinical practice which apply to all nurses. Chapter One focuses on the ANA standards for all clinical nurses. It discusses the relevance of the ANA standards to school nursing practice and presents new models of school health service delivery. Chapter Two looks at standards of school nursing and presents models of school nursing. Education for school nursing practice is examined and the evolution of the school nursing standards is traced. Chapter Three presents the National Association of School Nurses' (NASN) Standards of School Nursing Practice. The 10 standards are categorized under six role concepts: (1) Provider of Client Care (standards of clinical knowledge, nursing process, and clients with special health needs); (2) Communicator (standard of communication); (3) Planner and Coordinator of Client Care (standards of program management, collaboration within the school system, and collaboration with community health systems); (4) Client Teacher (standard of health education); (5) Investigator (standard of research); and (6) Role Within the Discipline of Nursing (standard of professional development).
