This model has been adopted by NASN and should be followed in the development of School Nurse Evidence-Based Practice Clinical Practice Guidelines.

School nurses need evidence-based clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) to provide quality care for students with special health care needs. However, a gap analysis revealed a paucity of rigorous school nursing CPG’s. To fill this gap, a Model for Developing Evidence-based Clinical Practice Guidelines for School Nursing (School Nursing CPG Model) was designed under the auspices of the National Association of School Nurses’ to offer school nurse scholars, school health leaders, and pediatric clinical experts a standardized structure and systematic process to create rigorous evidence-based CPGs under the auspices of NASN. The aim is to employ the School Nursing CPG Model to build a repository of CPGs which are projected to improve the quality of school nursing practice, thereby improving health and educational outcomes for students with special healthcare needs. The School Nursing CPG Model is anticipated to apply to CPG development for other nursing specialties.
