Did you know there is a new data initiative called Every Student Counts for 2018-19?

Ohio is participating in the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) data Initiative. Every Student Counts is designed to encourage a robust national school health data set that will:
  • Influence local, state, and national student health policy;
  • Identify best practices in school health; and
  • Better understand child health.
This design will lead to policies that better support the needs of students, increase evidence-based school nursing practice, and better youth health outcomes.
Data helps build bridges that connect school nursing to the rest of the health care system. This initiative provides the support and structure for the collection and use of data by every school nurse. The attached document provides more detailed information regarding this new data initiative.
