School nurses provide care for students with acute and chronic illness, including medication and treatment administration; educating students to improve disease knowledge, increase independence, and their ability for self-care. The school nurse also manages both physical injuries and mental health conditions. They do this all in a setting with very few tools for assessment, limited privacy, scarce resources, and generally, very limited clinical support. In this learning activity, five body systems will be covered discussing their primary functions and associated diseases. The following systems are included: Integumentary, Cardiovascular, Endocrine, Reproductive, and Nervous.

At the completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe how to perform an assessment of the integumentary system.
  • Recognize common cardiovascular issues seen in the school setting.
  • Examine common endocrine conditions in school-aged youths.
  • Discuss common reproductive health issues in school aged females.
  • Identify common neurological disorders in the school setting.
