The Role of the Certified School Nurse

School nursing, a specialized practice of nursing, protects and promotes student health, facilitates optimal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders who bridge health care and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potential. Adopted by the NASN Board of Directors February 2017.

A Certified School Nurse advocates for your child's health in school. Certified School Nurses (CSN) have the knowledge to navigate the educational system with minimal disruption to classroom learning and socialization.

The advanced education required to become certified blends the professions of nursing and education. CSNs are highly qualified to suggest and make accommodations to the learning process based on the child's health and needs. As a nursing specialty, CSNs are trained to educate school personnel to understand student health concerns, creating an environment where every student can succeed.
