Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
From the 2006 School Health Policies and Programs Study:
Are there any RN/LPNs who work in the school?
[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?
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.
Total student enrollment of the middle and junior high 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.
This objective is adapted from the Healthy People 2010 objective 7.4c, which traced the proportion of junior high schools that had a full-time registered nurse-to-student ratio of at least 1:750..
