The school nurse plays a key role in the health and quality of life of chronically ill children and their families"

The school nurse is not a new figure, as it is already institutionalized and consolidated in other countries, in private and foreign schools in our country, in specific public schools for special education and even in autonomous communities such as Madrid, Castilla La Mancha or Castilla León, where there are already school nurses in ordinary schools where children with health problems are integrated"

The scientific evidence on the relevance of the school nurse is extensive and we can find more than 800 studies, the largest scientific database in the world, which support, justify and strongly recommend the presence of a school nurse. School nurses have offically carried out their work in lots of countries within the European Union and the rest of the world and the figure of a school nurse is institutionalized in all Special Education Schools.
