Kwasman, Alan; Tinsley, Barbara; Thompson, Sharon
Journal of School Nursing, v20 n1 p22-28 2004
The purpose of this study was to examine school nurses' knowledge and beliefs about the management of children with attention deficit disorder (ADD). Seven hundred eighty-six school nurses responded to mailed surveys regarding their attitudes and knowledge about the management of children with attention deficit disorder. Surveys were mailed to school nurses randomly selected from the membership of the National Association of School Nurses. School nurses' knowledge of school management of ADD and their attitudes about physicians' participation as part of a team effort in this care were explored. School nurses responded that physicians should increase their efforts to educate children and parents about ADD. Recommendations for school nurses in the management of children with ADD are offered.
