School Nurse Resources
School nurses are the leaders that bridge healthcare and education, keeping children healthy, safe and ready to learn. Our partnership with the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) is a natural extension of our mission and 100-year history of providing compassionate, innovative care. Together, we can help prevent injuries, and improve the health and safety of all children through the sharing of knowledge and resources.
We make access to specialty pediatric care easy with our 20+ locations, telehealth options and outreach/satellite clinics. As strong advocates for your students’ healthcare needs, when you refer them and their families to Shriners Children’s for care, you provide a resource that makes a difference in children's lives.
