School Nurse Consultants

Our mission is to provide expertise in health and promote the academic success of the nation's children and youth by providing leadership and advocacy.

School nursing, a specialized practice of nursing, protects and promotes student health, facilitates optimal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders who bridge health care and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potential.  Adopted by the National Association of School Nurses Board of Directors February 2017.

School nursing practice in Michigan is guided by the Michigan School Code (legislates what must be done in schools) and the Michigan Public Health Code (legislates how medical professions may practice in Michigan). Michigan does not have a separate Nurse Practice Act.
