Several members of the Board of Directors of the National Board for Certification of School Nurses have written a paper that was recently published in the Journal of School Nursing.  The paper was based on the job analysis conducted in 201x by NBCSN to identify responsibilities, knowledge, and competencies required for effective performance as a school nurse. NBCSN conducts a job analysis every five years to validate concepts for the NCSN exam. The purpose of the paper was to determine tasks and knowledge relevant to modern school nursing in the United States, identify continuing education needs of school nurses, and describe anticipated changes to the professional role.
