Step Up & Be Counted!

National School Nurse Standardized Data Set:  

A Joint Project of the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) and the National Association of State School Nurse Consultants (NASSNC)

Step Up & Be Counted! A Joint NASN and NASSNC Initiative - 100% Students Counted - 100% School Nurses Participating

"Anything that is measured and watched, improves” ~ Bob Parsons, American Entrepreneur

School nurses collect rich and important data.  NASN and NASSNC are working together to develop a national uniform, standardized data set for all school nurses to collect specific data points the same way. 

The 2016-17 school year marks the third year of data collection by Step Up & Be Counted! School nurses are encouraged to collect specific data on the number of nurses and health personnel in schools, the number of children with diagnosed chronic health conditions, and the disposition of children seen in the school nurse office. We invite each school nurse to step up and be counted!
