We work to educate stakeholders and build partnerships, improve the adolescent health workforce, promote effective adolescent care, and provide planning and technical support.
National Association of School Nurses
On July 4, 1968, the National Education Association established the Department of School Nurses (DSN), an association dedicated to the advancement of school nursing practice and the health of school-aged children Their ultimate purpose was to improve the quality of school nursing, to upgrade the skills of school nurses and to further the abilities of all children to succeed in the classroom. In 1979 the DSN became the National Association of School Nurses and was separately incorporated. NASN is the largest association of school nurses and the hub for state affiliate associations. Since 1979 NASN has grown by leaps and bounds.Partnering with national health organizations, NASN continues to develop educational programs. NASN supports school nurse objectives by publishing issue briefs and position statements on subjects affecting student health and school nursing to keep members updated on aspects affecting their school communities. In the legislative arena, NASN employs a Washington DC-based representative to promote school nurse issues and interact with congress on the organization’s behalf.
School Based Health Alliance
At the School-Based Health Alliance our work is driven by a vision – that all children and adolescents are healthy and achieving at their fullest potential. Everything we do, from the day-to-day operations to the big picture strategy, is informed by this shared idea of what school-based health centers (SBHCs) can help to achieve. This vision has helped School-Based Health Alliance to evolve from a pure technical assistance and training organization to an advocacy organization with members. We have done this by increasing internal resources directed at federal advocacy and policy, and building a federal policy agenda. With a formalized affiliate structure to guide the relationship between School-Based Health Alliance and the states, the movement is the strongest it’s ever been.
