School nurses are a very important and enthusiastic part of the Network for a Healthy California—LAUSD team. They work with students, school staff and parents and are some of our best advocates for fruit and vegetable consumption and physical activity.

Network schools were given the opportunity to request the optional School Nurse SMART Goal during the 2012-2013 application process. A School Nurse is eligible to receive the Nurse SMART Goal Kit at up to two qualifying schools that he/she serves. In return, the nurse must perform 35 or more hours of nutrition education at each of those schools from October 1 through May 31. Nurses receiving the School Nurse Goal Kit are also required to complete all mandatory activities and track progress using the School Nurse SMART Goal tracking form.
School Nurses at Network schools that are not completing the optional School Nurse SMART Goal can contribute to their school's Network program as a certificated participant.
