School nurses are instrumental in leading and coordinating school efforts to keep our children healthy.  Missouri KIDS COUNT wants to recognize the hard work and dedication of school nurses through a series of three articles.  We hope that by presenting information on all that school nurses do, we can encourage others to support their efforts to keep our children, schools, and communities healthy.

The purpose of this first article is to provide general background about school nursing in order to set the stage for upcoming articles that are specific to school nurses in Missouri.
