District 303 Head Nurse, Juanita Gryfinski talks with Dr. Pearson about the role of school nurses. This year, school nurses continued to support students who manage chronic conditions like diabetes, while also being responsible for making recommendations to their districts about contact tracing, data collection, and communication related to COVID-19. Mrs. Gryfinski and nurses from around the country collaborated on an article entitled, “Framework for 21st Century School Nursing Practice,” published in the National Association of School Nurses Journal.
