School nurses play an important role in promoting the health of students in schools. They often act as a link between school, home, and the doctor’s office for children. School nurses ensure that a student’s health is managed and controlled during school hours by working with families, school staff, and outside health providers. Positive communication and consistent health messaging from nurses can help create a positive culture of health in schools.
