    Step Up and Be Counted! School nurses collect rich and important data.  NASN and NASSNCare working together with the support of SNOM and the State of Minnesota, to develop a national uniform, standardized data set for all school nurses to collect specific data points the same way. For this initial year, school year 2014-2015, school nurses are encouraged to collect specific data on the number of nurses in schools, the number of children with diagnosed chronic health conditions, and the disposition of children seen in the school nurse office.

    We need your help. Each school district in the sate of Minnesota should appoint one nurse to collect, tally and submit data.

    The first set of data, School Health Staffing: Direct Services (District Level Data will be collected electronically at the end of October. School districts will be receiving specific directions at that time.
