A data collection system is important for the success of the National School Health Data Set: Every Student Counts! data initiative. The National Association of School Nurses (NASN) will:
- Work with key partner organizations and researchers to develop an infrastructure to gather, store, and analyze data. (ALL data will be kept confidential.)
- Promote the integration of school health data with already existing data sources.
- Work with vendors to support data collection and interoperability of student health data.
NASN received a contract from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to assist in developing the national platform infrastructure. Learn more
