More Research Needed To Advance School Nursing
At the Core of Care is back with a new special series highlighting access to care. In this episode, we continue our coverage of school nursing as it remains an under-recognized and under-resourced field.
Erin Maughan, a former school nurse, and leading school nurse researcher, shares her perspective with us. Erin is the Director of Research at the National Association of School Nurses (NASN). She previously taught public health nursing at Brigham Young University. As Research Director at NASN, she is working to build up the research infrastructure around school nursing to advance the field, including efforts to increase and standardize data collection that will ultimately help shape future practice and policy.
