In the realm of the elementary school setting, the role of a community health nurse (CHN) cannot be overlooked. This is given that a community health nurse has a fundamental role in providing a wide range of health services to the children, thereby enabling them to reach their full academic potential. According to the National Association of School Nurses (2019), school nursing is termed as a specialized practice of professional nursing that seeks to enhance the overall academic success as well as the students’ life-long learning. In light of this, the roles of the CHN in an elementary school setting include case management services, health education as well as leadership role for the development of health policies and program. Taking this into consideration, this paper seeks to explore community health nurse in the elementary school setting. In addition, an organization that can help the CHN in provision of health services in elementary school setting will also be explained.
