Recommendations for Constructing School Nurses' Offices Designed to Support School Health Services
McKibben, Cynthia S.; DiPaolo, Sonja J.; Bennett, J. Scott
Journal of School Nursing, v21 n3 p164-169 2005
When attempting to locate guidelines for designing school nurses' offices, one finds there are minimal resources that address this need. In an effort to solve this concern, the authors were instrumental in writing an article for "The Journal of School Nursing" published in April 1997. The current article is an updated perspective that defines recommendations to be utilized in new construction or renovation of school nurses' offices. It encompasses information on square footage, design, utilization of space, location, and necessary equipment. Prototypes are provided that apply to elementary, middle school, and high school settings. The article outlines the importance of continued collaboration between the school nurse and key people involved in the planning and construction process, such as the school principal, administrators, and the district engineer. (Contains 3 figures.)
