Meeting the Health Needs of All Students
In SY 2011-12 there were 4,687 students who received RN Case Management for health conditions, tailored to student need. The data reflect that students receiving nursing case management for chronic conditions such as asthma or diabetes have a comparatively high return to class rate, even when experiencing health distress. These findings exhibit the value of managing chronic conditions in school. Doing so helps keep students healthy and in attendance.
