School Nurse Evaluations: Making the Process Meaningful and Motivational
McDaniel, Kathryn H.; Overman, Muriel; Guttu, Martha; Engelke, Martha Keehner
Journal of School Nursing, v29 n1 p19-30 Feb 2013
The professional standards of school nursing practice provide a framework to help school nurses focus on their unique mission of promoting health and academic achievement for all students. Without the standards, the nurse’s role can become task oriented and limited in scope. By using an evaluation tool that reflects the standards, nurses not only become aware and begin to understand the standards; they also become directly accountable for meeting them. In addition, developing an evaluation process based on the standards of school nurse practice increases the visibility of school nurses and helps school administrators understand the role of the school nurse. This article describes how one school district integrated the scope and standards of school nursing into the job description and performance evaluation of the nurse. The process which is used to complete the evaluation in a manner that is meaningful and motivational to the school nurse is described. (Contains 2 tables.)
