#1
Leslie Morgan
Adolescents are at higher risk for suicide attempts than other age groups. Suicide is now the second leading cause of death in the United States for ages 12 to 18; moreover, the risk of suicide is significantly higher for adoptive teens. In fact, adoptive teenagers have a four times higher rate of suicide attempts than biological children, perhaps due to the underlying nature of adoption, which can involve a pervasive sense of grief and loss for the adoptee. Unresolved anger and sadness from feelings of abandonment-especially when transitioning to adolescence-can cause a seemingly functional child to dissociate through self-harm and eventually demonstrate suicidal behavior...

This paper describes a user-friendly, Excel spreadsheet model and two data collection instruments constructed by the authors to help states and districts perform cost-benefit analyses of school nursing services delivered by full-time school nurses. Prior to applying the model, states or districts need to collect data using two forms: "Daily Nurse Data Collection Form" and the "Teacher Survey." The former is used to record daily nursing activities, including number of student health encounters, number of medications administered, number of student early dismissals, and number of medical procedures performed...

Kelley Miller Wilson
Though it is known that a minority of bully coaches exist, statistics regarding the actual prevalence of bully coaches in high schools are not well researched. School nurses may be placed in a consultative role with student athletes and their family members. Resource availability and suggestions for a plan of action are important for the school nurse. Support and encouragement for student athletes is critical for the development of positive mental health for young adults; therefore, families, peers, school personnel, and school nurses must all work together to produce positive sports experiences for high school age students...

There is a significant gap in meaningful school health data in the current national education and health data sets. Current data sets do not sufficiently capture the number and credentials of school health providers, the health of students who receive care at school, or the outcomes of school nurse interventions. Since 2014, school nurses across the United States have embraced Step Up and Be Counted!: A National Standardized School Nurse Data Set. The goal of Step Up is to collect school nurse data in a standardized, uniform format...

NASN's 48th Annual School Nurse Conference-Learning, Linking, Leading-included the first ever innovation relay contest. The relay was based on a design developed by the Institute of Healthcare Improvement's Innovation Relay. Participation included 43 contestants from 16 states and one foreign country. Teams were given 24 hours to develop a solution. This article describes the process utilized, the problem introduced, and a brief synopsis of each team's solution. The ongoing purpose of the exercise is to encourage innovation by school nurses as they experience student health-related barriers in the academic setting...

A sudden cardiac arrest in school or at a school event is potentially devastating to families and communities. An appropriate response to such an event-as promoted by developing, implementing, and practicing a cardiac emergency response plan (CERP)-can increase survival rates. Understanding that a trained lay-responder team within the school can make a difference in the crucial minutes between the time when the victim collapses and when emergency medical services arrive empowers school staff and can save lives...

Advances in technology continue to improve quality of life for people with diabetes and enhance their ability to perform diabetes self-management activities. Both insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) are increasingly more popular among students with diabetes. This article will provide school nurses an overview of how insulin pumps and CGMs operate and the implications of their use in the school setting.

The shortage of school nurses, school nurses covering multiple buildings, and the expanded role of the school nurse has called for innovative ideas to meet the growing health care needs of youth. Partnering with local schools of nursing may be a welcomed strategy. This brief article will share the benefits of hosting student nurses as well as identify ways to begin these partnerships.

The school nurse is the key figure in successful school screening programs. A student with unidentified and unmet health care needs is unlikely to perform at their full potential, both academically and socially. The purpose of the article is to serve as a resource, providing guidance, strategies, and a discussion of available equipment to assist with successful screening programs.

NASN recently developed a Framework for 21st-Century School Nursing Practice (Framework) to guide school nursing activities. The principles and components of the Framework can be used as a guide in achieving high-quality school nurse practice. The purpose of this article is to share how school nurses can use the Framework in their daily practice, invite nurses to identify one new way the Framework can be used in your practice this school year, and implement and evaluate the change.

Female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) is the practice in some immigrant populations of cutting or causing injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons. The incidence of FGM/C has increased by 314% in school-aged children according to a study published in 2016. The school nurse is in an optimal position to identify children at risk and build collaborative relationships to treat the students affected by the practice. FGM/C is child abuse and carries both federal and state legal consequences...

Teresa A DuChateau, Marie Wolff
Care of the Student With Special Healthcare Needs is a free resource that can assist school nurses in ensuring they are providing the most up-to-date, evidence-based care to children. Although the training module was developed to improve the care provided to Wisconsin children, the module can be accessed by school nurses and unlicensed assistive personnel (UAP) across the United States and internationally. School nurses in other states would need to review their state's nurse practice act and school district policies to evaluate which procedures they are allowed to delegate...
