Students presenting with syncope and/or seizure occur occasionally in the school setting. Several studies have shown that seizures as well as respiratory distress are the most common medical emergencies that prompt school nurses and staff to contact emergency medical services (EMS) to transport students to the closest emergency department (Knight 1999, Olympia 2005). It is important to develop a differential diagnosis for syncope, to initiate stabilization of the student with life-threatening symptoms, and to triage these students to an appropriate level of care (back to the classroom, home with their guardian with follow-up at their primary health care provider's office, or directly to the closest emergency department via EMS)...

Nurses, including school nurses, may reside in a state with compact licensing. On July 20, 2017, an enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (eNLC) was enacted with implementation beginning on January 19, 2018. Nurses must be knowledgeable about the status of their state's participation in the compact licensure, both their state of residence and their state of practice. Nurses must also be knowledgeable about what is entailed in compact licensure. This brief article provides basic information about compact licensing, along with considerations about nursing delegation, for the practicing school nurse...

Advancing evidence-based policy change is a leadership challenge that nurses should embrace. Key tips to ensure that evidence-based policy changes are successful at the individual, community, and population levels are offered to help nurses through the change process. The public trust in the nursing profession is a leverage point that should be used to advance the use of evidence, expedite change, and improve health for students and across communities.

Evidence-based practice (EBP) is often thought to be synonymous with research and literature. This article focuses on the fourth step in the EBP process: Apply. In this step, we fully integrate the EBP Venn diagram, which illustrates that EBP occurs at the intersection of evidence and data, clinical expertise and resources, and population's values and cultures. Only when school nurses include each component into their practice decision will true EBP occur.

Medication errors occur in the school setting as they do in other healthcare settings. In this article, three accounts of school nurse medication errors are presented. School nurses often undergo emotional trauma after a mistake is made. Other fields of healthcare are incorporating the second victim phenomena in their responses to errors, with the patient as the first victim and the caregiver who made the mistake as the second. Researchers have identified six stages of the second victim's journey. School nurses and administrators would benefit from understanding and utilizing this model...

Clean intermittent catheterization (IC) of the bladder is one example of advanced medical care required by students with special health care needs. The success of a child's intermittent catheterization program in a community setting such as a school is dependent on an educated team. This article discusses indications and problems that arise with IC bladder management in the pediatric population. The article also provides information about current best practice for IC management to assist school nurses in the optimization of bladder health...

Children are a population that has an increased risk of harm during any disaster events. This risk can be decreased by educating children in disaster preparedness skills. This article outlines a basic modifiable curriculum for teaching weather-related disaster preparedness to children ages 10-13, and shares how this was accomplished at an elementary school in North Alabama through a collaboration between the school and a local college of nursing.

School nurses are often faced with various requests from parents, teachers, and even healthcare providers. How do you know what requests should be honored? What does the current evidence indicate? This article is the third in a series of articles outlining the steps of evidence-based practice. The article explains and provides tips for accomplishing the third step: Appraise the evidence. Appraising the evidence means better understanding what the literature says and how strong the evidence is. This is an important step in evidence-based school nursing practice...

Current evidence-based and best practice vision screening and eye health approaches, tools, and procedures are the result of revised national guidelines in the past 3 years and advances in research during the last 16 years. To help the busy school nurse with little time to keep up with changes in children's vision practices and a growing body of literature, the National Center for Children's Vision and Eye Health at Prevent Blindness is providing answers to 20 questions received most often from the field. Question topics are: (1) arranging the screening environment, (2) occluders to cover the eyes during vision screening, (3) optotype-based screening at distance, (4) optotype-based screening at near, (5) instrument-based screening, (6) muscle imbalance screening, (7) referrals, and (8) vision screening certification...

Barbara Obst, Megan Roesler
One of the "hidden" medical devices in the school setting is the baclofen pump, which is used for the treatment of spasticity. The goals of spasticity treatment are to decrease muscle tone, deformity, and pain in order to maximize function and ease of care for both child and caregiver. The use of an intrathecal baclofen pump, often for children with cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, brain injury, or stroke, has been effective in spasticity treatment. It is important for school nurses to be aware of the safety implications associated with this type of device...

Quality school nursing practice should be evidence-based. However registered nurses in autonomous school nursing practice have limited capacities to access, synthesize, and implement the best evidence into practice. Clinical guidelines are important tools to reduce barriers to evidence-based practice (EBP) and support the delivery of high-quality school nursing care. The purpose of this article is to outline what EBP clinical guidelines are, are not, and why they matter.

The 2015 passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) provides state education agencies with more local control over educational planning, requires development of state accountability plans, and provides opportunities for advocacy surrounding school nursing-sensitive indicators of student success. Federal Title I, II, and IV funds are available for state and local education agency utilization in meeting educational needs of impoverished students and for development of high-quality instructional and support personnel...
