Well said Mark, school nurses struggle constantly with the various stereotypes that administrators and others have about our role. It does help when we are able to share the current statistics – both local, state and national about the students we serve as well as the health and wellness challenges they face that impact their learning and their lives. Healthy Schools Campaign has done so much to equip nurses with tools to pro actively respond to the needs of our students. Slowly but surely the message is getting out and school nurses are taking their rightful place at the table with others concerned about members of the school community. Phyllis Pelt, MS, RN
