Abstract

Nurses employed by schools and health departments have varying responsibilities for curricula related to menstruation, menarche, and sexuality. Nevertheless, the school nurse is usually a source of information on these subjects whether employed full-time in school health or also participating in other nursing roles in the community. This survey examines the involvement of school nurses in curricula related to human reproduction including contraception. Data about their involvement in these classroom topics provides a basis for evaluating their roles and making recommendations for subsequent continuing education programs for school health nurses.
