SchoolhealthLink, a Web-based information service for Missouri school nurses, is a promising resource to reach school nurses isolated from traditional professional networks. It also may serve as an important adjunct to stay abreast of the latest health information. Using a strategy to identify the health information needs of school nurses and to test the site early in its development, this pilot study found school nurses reported SchoolhealthLink was an easy-to-use method to find high-quality, up-to-date information relevant to school nursing practice, was better than existing methods to access information, and could change the way they practiced. In order to continue to build SchoolhealthLink, a partnership with Barnes College of Nursing and the Missouri Association of School Nurses has been established to work together to continue to add health information resources useful to school nursing practice.
