Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


Produced in cooperation with the National Association of School Nurses, this text includes 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.

“I recently started working as a school nurse and find this text invaluable. I have used this as a reference for many situations that I have dealt with. I would highly recommend to anyone new to the school nursing field.”
—Amazon Reviewer

“Thorough and comprehensive text covering everything I need to know about school nursing. Great resource and I highly recommend it for any school nurse!”
—Amazon Reviewer

“The first edition of this text…was included in the 2006 American Journal of Nursing Books of the Year. This 2019 edition surely meets and surpasses that and is highly recommended to all nurses in the fields of pediatric and adolescent health.” —Anita Caitlin, Journal of Pediatric Surgical Nursing
