Resource: School Nurses Mental Health Study

This study was the first nationwide survey focusing on the mental health of school nurses during the COVID-19 pandemic. Researchers found that work stressors and COVID-19-related job duties were significantly associated with poor mental health symptoms among school nurses, particularly when they: 

  • Worked more than 40 hours weekly. 

  • Felt unappreciated. 

  • Reported inadequate staffing support or compensation. 

  • Experienced lack of peer, supervisor, or school leadership support. 

  • Reported stigma, discrimination, job-related threats, or harassment due to their work.
