Supporting the
practice of school nursing
through research.

Who we are

Over 100 Massachusetts school nurses, along with public health nurses and nurse academics investigate, publish, and present research related to the practice of school nursing.

The collaboration of members from Massachusetts School Nurses’ Organization, Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and Boston College Connell School of Nursing established this research network in 2004. Several studies have been conducted in a variety of MA schools and presented both locally and nationally.

Thirteen years later, school nursing research in Massachusetts continues to flourish.
