Problem: According to the National Association of School Nurses, the student to nurse ratio is 867:1 with only 45% of U.S. public schools employing a full-time nurse. The demands of a school nurse are growing beyond attention to student health. Accountability, paperwork, and data entry are taking valuable time away from a school nurse’s number one priority - the student. Many times due to these additional responsibilities, nurses do not have the time to inform parents of their child’s visits to the nurse. In any school with 1,000 students, the average number of trips to the nurse’s office is about 60 per day. This makes it nearly impossible to effectively evaluate, diagnose, treat and document a student illness or injury in under 8 minutes per student. Also, parents/guardians of K-12 students are often unaware if their child was seen by the school nurse for illness, injury, or scheduled medication unless they are called by the teacher or the school nurse.

Solution: NursePass (1) digitizes the referral process from classroom teacher to school nurse and in the end to the parent, (2) maximizes preparation time school nurses need to prepare for visits, (3) streamlines the time-consuming task of student health data entry. As a result, school nurses, teachers, administrators, parents, and children have increased peace of mind and assurance of care, and (4) is HIPPA and FERPA compliant.
