        1. Yes
        2. No

        [If yes:] Please tell me how many RNLPNs work in your school, which days of the week each RN is here, and how many hours each RN/LPN is usually here on those days.

        [If an RN/LPN doesn't have a regular schedule, ask:] How many total hours per week is this RN/LPN usually in your school?

      Periodic
      Methodology Notes: 

        Starting with the 2012 survey, the name of the SHPPS survey was changed from the School Health Policies and Programs Study to the School Health Policies and Practices Study.

        The nurse-to-student ratio is the number of school nurses divided by the total student enrollment. One school nurse is defined as 30 nurse-hours per week per school.

        Total student enrollment of all the schools included in SHPPS is obtained from the Quality Education Data (QED) database. QED’s National Education Database covers all educational institutions in the United States and Canada.

      Changes Between HP2010 and HP2020: 
      This objective differs from Healthy People 2010 objective 07-04a in that the Healthy People 2010 objective tracked the proportion of middle, junior, and senior high schools (excluding elementary schools) with a full-time registered nurse-to-student ratio of at least 1:750 while this objective tracks the proportion of elementary, middle, and senior high schools with the same ratio.

      Methodology Notes: 

        The National Profile of Local Health Departments (NPLHD) is designed to provide a comprehensive and accurate description of local health department infrastructure and practice. The study is based on an extensive questionnaire distributed by the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) to every local health department (LHD) in the U.S. An LHD is defined as “an administrative or service unit of local or state government concerned with health, and carrying some responsibility for the health of a jurisdiction smaller than the state.” Community-based organizations (CBOs) include local health departments, tribal health services, nongovernmental organizations, and multiple state agencies.

        Hawaii and Rhode Island are excluded from the NPLHD because the state health departments in these states operate on behalf of local public health and have no sub-state units.

      Methodology Notes: 

        The National Profile of Local Health Departments (NPLHD) is designed to provide a comprehensive and accurate description of local health department infrastructure and practice. The study is based on an extensive questionnaire distributed by the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) to every local health department (LHD) in the U.S. A LHD is defined as “an administrative or service unit of local or state government concerned with health, and carrying some responsibility for the health of a jurisdiction smaller than the state.” Community-based organizations (CBOs) include local health departments, tribal health services, nongovernmental organizations, and multiple state agencies.

        Hawaii and Rhode Island are excluded from the NPLHD because the state health departments in these states operate on behalf of local public health and have no sub-state units.

      Changes Between HP2010 and HP2020: 
      This objective differs from Healthy People 2010 objective 07-10 in that the Healthy People 2010 objective was intended to track the proportion of Tribal and local health services areas or jurisdictions that had established a community health promotion program addressing multiple Healthy People 2010 focus areas. (Data to monitor progress were not identified and the objective remained developmental throughout Healthy People 2010.) This objective (ECBP-10.4) measures the proportion of community-based organizations that provide population-based primary prevention services in tobacco use.
