Coordinated School Health Programs. Position Statement. Revised
National Association of School Nurses (NJ1)
It is the position of the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) that all children should have the right to coordinated school health programs. NASN supports continued research to document the outcomes of these programs. School nurses should use their professional education and skills to assist their schools and communities in the development, implementation, and evaluation of coordinated school health programs. School nurses should assume a leadership role and collaborate with organizations, institutions and local, state and federal governments to advocate for policies, legislation, and financing for the development, implementation, and evaluation of coordinated school health programs. In particular, improving the school nurse to student ratio is a key component to ensuring that that nation's children have access to coordinated school health programs. (Contains 8 references/resources.) [For the complete report, "Position Statements, Issue Briefs, Resolutions and Consensus Statements. Revised," see ED539227.]
