Quality Assurance in School Health
Newell, Susan; Schoenike, Sumner L.; Lisko, Elaine A.
Journal of School Nursing, v19 n3 p157-162 2003
School nurses need to become more influential administrators, managers, and entrepreneurs. They must learn to lead and collaborate effectively in designing, implementing, and evaluating coordinated school health programs. Quality assurance is an essential ingredient in this process that requires accurate, timely, and confidential incident reporting and data analysis structures. These structures, in turn, can serve as the foundation of evidence-based practice and overall system improvement. School nurses can and should assume a key role in the process and thereby continue to meet the challenges of the more sophisticated school health services that today's student population requires. In this way, school nurses will continue to protect and advance the health and safety of the students who are entrusted to their care.
