Change, Challenge and School Nursing looks at both the health needs of young people and the school nursing service in practice.
Based on a survey of almost three thousand pupils, it examines young people's views on their own health, their support needs, where they turn to for advice, and their contacts with school nurses. From interviews with school nursing professionals, it provides a 'snapshot' of school nursing services in transition, outlining provision, priorities and how young people's health needs are being addressed. School nursing services are rapidly shedding a medical model and adopting a public health role, but they still face many challenges in providing an effective service for all young people. Taking the views and experiences of young users into account will help to meet some of these. Although school nursing services across the country are highly variable, the lessons from this research will have wide applicability for the way forward.
