School nursing is...
a specialized practice of professional nurses that advances the well being, academic success and life-long achievement of students. To that end, school nurses faciliate 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.
National Association of School Nurses, 1999
