Fryer, George E., Jr.; Igoe, Judith B.
Journal of School Health, v66 n2 p55-58 Feb 1996
Data from a nationwide survey of school districts were used to contrast roles of nurses and health assistants in school health programs. Results indicated that nurses were underused in school health education. Health assistants tended to administer medication and basic first aid, and nurses provided technically involved clinical services. (SM)
