School Nursing: The Essential Reference provides comprehensive coverage of school nursing—from key foundational principles and best practices for the care and management of students to the future of school nursing practice. Edited and authored by experts in the field, this multidisciplinary reference offers full background on the scope and standards of school nursing, interdisciplinary practices, coordinated school health programs, cultural competency, and laws and ethics. It also provides tools for the school nurse to thrive as an advocate, health educator, and leader.

Sexual orientation and gender identity are explored, as are violence toward self and others, emergency and disaster preparedness, and the impact of COVID-19.

Supplementary online resources include more than 100 multiple-choice review questions that can be used by school nurses to test themselves on essential knowledge to prepare for practice, or by instructors in the classroom setting.
