Baszler, Rita; Rochkes, Laura; Dolatowski, Rosemary; Mendes, Irene; Yow, Barbara; Butler, Sarah; Fekaris, Nina
National Association of School Nurses (NASN)
It is the position of the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) that all children with chronic health conditions should receive coordinated and deliberate transition planning to maximize lifelong functioning and well-being. Transition planning refers to a coordinated set of activities to assist students with chronic health conditions to begin in school, and then move from one school to another, from hospitalization back to school, and from the secondary school system into their next stage of life (Selekman, Bocheneck, & Lukens, 2013). The registered professional school nurse has the perspective and skills to provide care coordination and lead the planning team to address transitions for students with chronic health conditions. [This Position Statement replaces the Issue Brief "Transition Planning for Students with Chronic Health Conditions," adopted June 2012 (see ED539227).]
