Role of the School Nurse

It is the position of the National Association of School Nurses  that the professional registered school nurse is the leader in the  school community to oversee school health policies and programs. The  school nurse serves in a pivotal role to provide expertise and oversight  for the provision of school health services and promotion of health  education. Using clinical knowledge and judgment, the school nurse  provides health care to students and staff, performs health screenings,  and coordinates referrals to the medical home or private health care  provider. The school nurse serves as a liaison between school personnel,  family, community and healthcare providers to advocate for health care  and a healthy school environment (American Nurses Association &  National Association of School Nurses, 2011).

You are the parent of two teenagers and an active PTA member at their  school. The principal approached you about an upcoming professional  gathering for middle- and high-school nurses in your district. She asked  you to make a short presentation on school health privacy and how it  can affect nurse-student care within the teen population, where personal  health issues and privacy concerns often collide.

Preparation

Research and gather information about the issues facing school  nurses in your state of licensure, as well as state and federal privacy  laws that govern your school health privacy information. You will also  need to learn about the legal limitations and responsibilities of the  school nurse.

Directions

Create a 6–8-slide PowerPoint presentation that examines the  privacy issues unique to nurses serving the high-school age population.  Address the following:

  • Describe the types of health and wellness issues that can affect  adolescents in their high-school years. Be sure you think beyond the  usual things and really research the types of issues that are affecting  young people today.
  • Explain how privacy laws can impact the school nurse in regard to patient safety and health outcomes for adolescents.
  • Explain how privacy laws benefit the student, the school, and the school nurse.
  • Recommend two specific evidence-based ethical strategies  regarding health and wellness privacy communications in a school  environment.

Use the notes section of each slide to expand your points and cite  your supporting evidence. Also, include a title slide and a reference  slide that lists the resources you used in this assessment.

Be creative. Consider your intended audience.

Additional Requirements

Your presentation should meet the following requirements:

  • Written communication: Written communication should be free of errors that detract from the overall message.
  • References: Include a reference slide with a  minimum of three references; a majority of these should be peer-reviewed  sources. All resources should have been published within the last 5  years.
  • APA format: Resources and citations should be formatted according to current APA style and formatting.
  • Length: 6–8 slides.
