School nurses improve facilitation of obesity interventions for students

April 27, 2016

School-based obesity interventions that included school nurses resulted in positive BMI outcomes for students, according to recent research in the Journal of School Health.

“One potential means of implementing effective school-based interventions is to involve school nurses,” Arlene Smaldone, PhD, CPNP, assistant dean of scholarship and research at Columbia University School of Nursing, and colleagues wrote. “Our findings demonstrate that school-based interventions that involve nurses led to small but significant decreases in BMI, BMIz and BMI percentile.”
