This session, hosted by the NASN Scope and Standards Revision committee, will provide an overview of the newly revised School Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice (4th Edition) with particular attention to new and emerging trends, issues, and competencies. The session will include how the Scope and Standards of Practice can be used as an advocacy tool, a guided practice for new school nurse orientation, an evaluation tool, to create position descriptions, and for quality improvement.
