School nurses connect health care and education by providing services that promote the health and well-being of children and minimize barriers to learning. Professional school nurses use their expertise to provide acute, chronic, and emergency care for students. School nurses prevent, monitor, and control communicable diseases and screen for other conditions that interfere with academic achievement. School nurses promote health and safety by advocating for health care and a healthy school environment. School nurses are liaisons between the school, the family, and the community.
