Toolkit OverviewCare Coordination is one of the five principles in NASN’S Framework for 21st Century School Nursing PracticeTM (the Framework). In April 2018, NASN convened the Strategy to Action Roundtable to identify key components of a collaborative approach to manage chronic health conditions in school-age children. The resulting white paper, Translating Strategies into Actions to Improve Care Coordination for Students with Chronic Health Conditions (NASN, 2019), ended with a call to action for meeting participants to work together in the school community. The roundtable also resulted in a call to action for NASN to develop additional tools and resources to support the school nurse role in leading care coordination for students with chronic health conditions. This toolkit answers that call.
