Welcome to the Kansas School Nurse Organization

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 healthcare 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.  (NASN, 2017)
