Health and Physical Assessments for Special Education

Once you are familiar with the document, "The Role of the LSN in the Special Education Process", the SNOM Special Education Committee recommends that you use the following tool, Licensed School Nurse Assessment of Health/Physical Status, as a guide when conducting special education nursing evaluations/assessments for initial IEPs or 3 year reassessments. This tool includes the essential components for an LSN evaluation/assessment according to standards of nursing practice.
