Hello Georgia School Nurses,

As you wrap up the school year and head off for summer break, we hope you have committed to completing the GA. Every Student Counts survey. We want to share some additional information and a resource that might assist you with completing your survey. We are attaching NASN’s Data Point Definition and Explanation Summary.

Reporting accurate data can be a little tricky, especially the staffing information, so we want to make sure you have a tool to assist you. For example: A contract 1:1 nurse (LPN or RN) for special education student would be counted in the staffing for SPECIAL ASSIGNMENT FOR FTE's. A nurse employed by someone else working in a clinic setting (LPN or RN) would be counted in the staffing for either DIRECT SERVICES or FLOAT, depending on their location assignment.  

If you have any questions, please let us know.

We hope you have a great summer, and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the GASN conference on Jekyll!!! 

Thank you,

Georgia Every Student Counts Task Force
