School Nursing Practices for the 21st Century
Course #
Graduate Credits
Grade Level
As the past few years have made clear, school nurses’ critical impact on students’ achievement and wellbeing goes far beyond ice packs and Band-Aids. School nurses practice at the intersection of healthcare and education, coordinating wellness for students, staff, and community. In this course, created specifically for nurses practicing in the PreK-12 setting, you’ll explore challenges and opportunities in 21st Century school nursing. You’ll consider the impact of coordinated school healthcare, school nursing principles, and your own experiences as a school nurse. Then, you’ll apply your learning to current topics in the field, from managing chronic health conditions, to identifying and supporting mental health challenges, creating Individualized Health Plans, and preventing child trafficking. Because school nursing lacks the recognition and funding it deserves, you’ll develop a plan to educate your school community or other stakeholders about the essential, life-saving, need for a school nurse in every school, every day.
