School nursing practice has changed dramatically over the past 20 years, yet few nationally representative investigations describing the school nursing workforce have been conducted. The National School Nurse Workforce Study describes the demographic and school nursing practice patterns among self-reported public school nurses and the number and full-time equivalent (FTE) positions of all school nurses in the United States. Using a random sample stratified by public/private, region, school level, and urban/rural status from two large national data sets, we report on weighted survey responses of 1,062 public schools. Additional questions were administered to estimate the school nurse population and FTEs. Findings reported illustrate differences by strata in public school nurse demographics, practice patterns, and nursing activities and tasks. We estimate approximately 132,300 self-identified practicing public and private school nurses and 95,800 FTEs of school nurses in the United States. Research, policy, and school nursing practice implications are discussed.

Change Challenge and School Nursing

Change  Challenge and School Nursing

The current-day central yet broad role of the school nurse has inevitably meant
that she is, in theory at least, relied upon to play a key part in a wide range of
specific initiatives and programmes that have been developed in recent years.

Change, Challenge and School Nursing looks at both the health needs of young people and good practice in school nursing. Based on a survey of almost three thousand pupils, it examines young people's views on their own health, their support needs, where they turn to for advice, and their contacts with school nurses. Interviews with school nursing professionals, provide a 'snapshot' of school nursing services in transition from a medical model to a public health role, outlining provision, priorities and how young people's health needs are being addressed. The challenges in providing an effective service for all young people are highlighted and taking the views and experiences of young users into account will help to meet some of these. The lessons from this research are broadly applicable across the service.

“Fast Facts for the School Nurse, Second Edition, will direct school nurses to the answers for many questions and to wiser counsel when a dilemma seems unsolvable. It is…authored by a school nurse of publicly acclaimed distinction who brings a lifetime of experience to these pages.” —Lucille A. Joel, EdD, RN, FAAN, Professor, College of Nursing Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey From the Foreword This concise reference provides quick access to information busy school nurses need every day to practice competently and efficiently. It is written for nurses who are transitioning to a school setting, yet has much to offer more experienced school nurses. The second edition has been substantially revised to address the Healthy People 2020 initiative to school-age children and their families, and to incorporate information about the push toward formal evaluation of school nurses. It discusses new technology and the effects of head trauma and other sports-related injuries on academic performance. New content, “Top 10 Timely Troublesome Topics for the School Nurse,” deals with issues such as getting substitutes and the prioritization of tasks for novice and substitute school nurses. Authored by a nurse with over 25 years of school nursing experience, this consistently organized reference offers straightforward guidelines to a range of daily tasks and nursing responsibilities and provides clinical protocols for safe management of common childhood illnesses, accidents, and emergencies, along with legal and ethical considerations, documentation, high-risk areas in school nursing practice, and the requirements of both the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Included are the delivery of culturally appropriate care, screening tools, wellness strategies, care plans for children with chronic disorders and special needs, adolescent sexuality, childhood obesity, drug use, and a food allergies “tool kit.” “Clinical Snapshots” throughout highlight critical information. The guide is useful as a supplemental textbook for nursing students studying for state or national certification exams. New to the Second Edition: “Top 10 Timely Troublesome Topics for the School Nurse” Correlations of the Healthy People 2020 initiative with school nurse practice Meaningful examples (“Clinical Snapshots”) relevant to the topic The effects of head trauma and other sports-related injuries on academic performance Academic requirements for school nursing in each state Prioritization of tasks for novice and substitute school nurses
