School nursing today is a highly specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well being, academic success, and life-long achievement of students. Today's school nurses are critical thinkers who facilitate positive student responses to normal development; they promote health and safety; they intervene with actual and potential health problems; they provide case management services; and they actively collaborate to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy and learning.
