Abstract

The aim of this research is to explore the meaning of the experience of school-based youth health nursing in Queensland, Australia. The research follows a qualitative approach and is based on indepth interviews.

The dominant experience is negative because participants feel they have to battle to gain respect and survive in the school environment.

The small, positive experience of school-based youth health nursing is related to student consultations. Student consultations are a ‘golden egg’ because participants gain a sense of reward from making a difference to student wellbeing.

This paper proposes operational recommendations including those related to health promotion and professional development and strategic recommendations regarding this model of school nursing.

The authors conclude, first, that this ‘golden egg’ should be promoted to ensure all school nurses reap the rewards, second, that this model of school nursing is not the most effective model.
