We are leaders for the advocacy of student health.
School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well being, academic success, and life-long achievement of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self management, self advocacy, and learning." This definition was adopted at the NASN Board of Directors meeting in Providence, Rhode Island in June 1999.
Sachem School Nurses support the health and educational success of children and youth by developing and providing leadership to advance school nursing practice by specialized registered nurses.
Please contact your building's school nurse with any questions or concerns you may have about your child's health in school.
