School Health Manual

The San Diego School Health Manual is intended to be an overview of school nursing and school health practice in our county. This manual provides resources for the many California mandates, relevant laws, and common issues in our schools today.

School districts are encouraged to utilize this resource in support of their school nursing and school health services program. 
This manual is built upon the contributions of many nurses and professionals who have helped with past versions, and who have added their professional knowledge.
