School nursing recognizes the promotion of health and safety, intervention with potential health concerns, case management services, and active collaboration with others to facilitate a student's educational success.
Public health nursing first emerged in the 19th century and pioneered the linkage between home and school. Assignments included acute medical treatment of students in a one-room school house, visiting homes of the children, and providing access to care among community members. Many components of early school nursing (management of contagious diseases and conditions, coordination of health services, promotion of healthy behaviors) are applicable to the health and welfare of students today.
