Participants in this session will utilize the Framework for 21st Century School Nursing Practice(TM) to develop a plan for systems change that has the potential to exert a positive impact on student health. The presenters will demonstrate implementation of the Framework for 21st Century School Nursing Practice(TM) via school nurse advocacy for needed change in the board of nursing delegation guidance to allow implementation of evidence-based practice in the school setting. Through collaboration with the board of nursing and the state health department, school nurses could affect necessary changes via the development of delegation algorithms specific to school nursing practice and update guidance language on the board of nursing website.
As a result of participating in this educational program, learners will be able to:
- Identify two areas of school nurse practice that can benefit from systems change.
- Utilize two or more Framework for 21st Century School Nursing Practice (TM) principles to guide a plan for policy change.
- Develop an advocacy plan for policy change to
improve student health outcomes.
