Ethical Challenges for School Nurses During COVID-19

Ellen McCabe, Beth E. Jameson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)


School nurses balanced ethical challenges with the moral responsibility to students and the public health of the school community during a global pandemic. This balance revealed the critical role of the school nurse. We encourage school nurses to harness lessons learned during this pandemic to make proactive changes and eliminate structures that did not support practice. School nurses must use their voices and demand change; school systems have a moral responsibility to all stakeholders.
