Program Overview
School nurses collect and maintain a vast amount of personal information related to students and their health. The ability to share these data with (and obtain information from) other health care providers and agencies is important for a number of reasons, including enhancing continuity of care, improving students’ health management at school, conducting important educational and health research, enriching collaboration among providers and partner organizations, and determining best practices in student care.Nonetheless, real-world challenges to data sharing exist in the K-12 setting, some real and some perceived.

Learning Outcomes
As a result of participating in this educational activity, learners will be able to:
  • Gain an enhanced understanding of the Family Educational Rights Act (FERPA), a federal law that governs confidentiality and sharing of information contained in student education records by schools.
  • Understand important factors to consider in data sharing arrangements and partnerships across sectors.
  • Learn what to include in legal data sharing agreements with partners.
  • Apply learned material to real world scenarios through case studies.

Intended Audience
This continuing education program is a knowledge-based activity developed to meet the educational needs of registered nurses who are interested in child and adolescent health.
