School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success and life-long achievement and health of students. To that end, I, as school nurse, facilitates positive student responses to normal development; promotes health and safety including a healthy environment; intervenes with actual and potential health problems; provides case management services; and actively collaborates with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self advocacy, and learning.
