School nurses cover acute care needs in school (including the three “B’s’ of school nursing – bumps, bruises and bellyaches) and are community-oriented, providing health information to students, teachers, principals and parents.
A school nurse’s primary responsibility is to promote and protect the health of students and staff within a school or educational setting. This includes providing direct care for students with health needs or concerns, administering medications and treatments, conducting health assessments and screenings, developing and implementing health care plans, and promoting health education and disease prevention. School nurses also collaborate with other health professionals, educators, and parents to ensure a safe and healthy environment for students to learn and grow.
