NASN Position Statement: Telehealth: Equitable Student Access to Health Services
It is the position of NASN that the utilization of telehealth technology is a valuable tool that can assist school nurses to enhance access to school and community health services. A substantial number of students experience health disparities related to a lack of access to primary and specialty services and to school nurse services. The school nurse is on the frontlines of student health and has the expertise to provide a critical link and oversight to implement telehealth in the school setting (National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine [NASEM], 2021).
