Rose, Kathleen C.; Blout, JoAnn; DiGregorio, Heiddy; Selekman, Janice
National Association of School Nurses (NJ1)
It is the position of the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) that quality health care within the school environment can best be attained through the employment of a full-time registered professional school nurse (hereinafter referred to as school nurse) for each school building. The health services needed by students at school continue to evolve in complexity and quantity increasing the need for the advanced knowledge and skills of the school nurse. While volunteers, licensed or unlicensed, may be needed to assist the school nurse, they must never act in the place of the school nurse.
