School nurse capacity building

As part of the National School Health Data Set: Every Student Counts! data initiative, the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) will develop education webinars, toolkits, templates, podcasts, conference breakout sessions, articles, and other resources for NASN Affiliates and local areas. This will enable each school nurse to do the following:

  1. Collect, analyze, and report on students.
  2. Utilize the data to guide practice.
  3. Present data to communicate the health needs of students to a variety of stakeholders.
  4. Advocate for electronic health records.
