School nurses and health education : the classroom experience.
Klien , Julie, Sendall, Marguerite C., Fleming, Mary-Lou, Lidstone, John, & Domocol, Michelle (2013) School nurses and health education : the classroom experience. Health Education Journal, 72(6), pp. 708-715.
The aim of the study is to explore school nurses’ experience of health education.
A qualitative approach; phenomenology was used to answer the question.
Sixteen participants were recruited through purposeful and snowball sampling. Participants undertook an audio-recorded interview which was transcribed and analysed.
Five themes represent school nurses’ experience of health education. Within these five themes, three issues were identified by the participants as having a negative impact on their experience of health education.
(1) feeling unwanted by the school; (2) not supported by the school hierarchy; and (3) a lack of role definition.
These three issues provide important insight into school nurses’ experience of health education and have implications for other school nurses and professionals in the school environment.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
