MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study is to determine the impact of the introduction of school nursing services on the management practices of school-based health services in a kindergarten through grade 12 school district. The data obtained from the assessment of school-based health services, prior and post introduction of school nursing services, were compared to determine the effectiveness of school nursing services in the school district. The results of the study demonstrated an increase in coordinated school-based health services and management practices of health services in the school district after the introduction of school nursing services. The school nurses encountered barriers while providing school-based health services which impacted the results of the study. The types of barriers included incomplete health information provided to schools by parents or guardians, resistance to change by school staff, lack of funding resources, and difficulty in scheduling school staff in-service education programs.
