"School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well being, academic success and life-long achievements of students.  The goals are to 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."
