Children spend around 1100 hours at school each year, and many of them have chronic diseases. Therefore, it is essential to include school nurses as part of the health care team. Care coordination between healthcare providers and school nurses is currently hindered by communication that relies on inadequate fax, phone, and traditional mail systems.
School Nurse EHR Software plays an important role in linking students' health details with the school nurse.
School nurses coordinate student health care for prevention and treatment to remove health barriers to learning and school attendance. They use a team approach to manage students with chronic conditions as they transition among home, school, and healthcare settings, working to develop competent self-care aligned with students' developmental ages. Always, the goal is to keep students in school, healthy, and ready to learn.
