Awarded a 2012 AJN Book of the Year Award!

The only text endorsed by the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) and winner of an AJN Book-of-the-Year Award is now in its 2nd Edition!

Inside, you’ll find comprehensive coverage of the multiple facets of school nursing—from the foundations of practice and the roles and functions of a school nurse through episodic and chronic illness and behavioral issues, to legal issues and leading and managing within school settings.

Written and edited by school nurses and pediatric experts, it features real-world-tested, best practices based on evidence and experience. There’s content here that you won’t find in other books, such as health assessments, individualized health plan development, mental health conditions including adolescent depression, contemporary legal issues, and current policy statements essential to school nursing.
