School Nurse's serve in a pivotal role to provide expertise and oversight for the provision of school health services and promotion of health education. Using clinical knowledge and judgement, the school nurse provides health care to students and staff, performs health screenings and coordinates referrals to the medical home and private healthcare provider. The school nurse serves as a liason between school personnel, family, community, and healthcare providers to advocate for health care and a healthy school environment (National Association of School Nurses/American Nurses Association [NASN/ANA], 2005)

A student's health status is directly related to his or her ability to learn. Children with unmet health needs have a difficult time engaging in the educational process.  The school nurse supports the students by providing health care assessments, intervention and follow up.  The school nurse addresses the physical, mental, emotional, and social health needs of students and supports their achievements in the learning process. The school nurse not only provides for the safety and care of students and staff but also addressess the need for intergrating health solutions in the the education setting. (NASN)
