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 stages of childhood and adolescence are vulnerable, since this is when individuals are in the process of developing habits that will allow them to develop their own concept of themselves as a person and a citizen. School health programs developed by school nurses can help students in this regard through education on healthy lifestyles, actions for the care and protection of children and adolescents, and mechanisms for the construction of a true culture of health. 

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. Among the conclusions we can highlight the following:

  • 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 able to establish systems of training for trainers in health education or "cascade training" to help create a culture of health in the educational community
  • Not only do they detect life-threatening health problems early, but they can also train teachers to detect symptoms that, if not properly addressed, can have fatal consequences for the child
  • One school nurse per education center is the recommended ratio in order to adequately care for children with special needs

This Postgraduate Diploma in Health Education in Schools brings together the different approaches and models of education, health and health education that have been proposed in recent years, in order to facilitate programming, implementation and evaluation of these interventions for those who are new to this type of intervention, and to support training in health education.
