This course is designed to prepare the professional nurse for certification as a school nurse in Pennsylvania; both the theory component (NUR 1077 ) and the practicum (NUR 1078 ) are required for eligibility. The role of the school nurse is explored through the historical, legal, ethical, research and practice perspectives. The biological, physical, developmental, behavioral, cultural and psychosocial needs of children of all ages in the school setting are examined. Throughout the course, current evidence related to school nursing and Pennsylvania educational requirements is applied to the health needs of school age children, including those with special health and learning needs, the culturally diverse and English language learners (ell’s). The independent and collaborative aspects of the school nurse role are explored.
