Mental Health of School Nurses in the United States during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Highlights from a national survey | March 7-30, 2022

A CDC study published in the Journal of School Nursing found that work stressors and COVID-19-related job duties were significantly associated with poor mental health symptoms among school nurses.1

In March 2022, CDC collaborated with the National Association of School Nurses and the National Association of State School Nurse Consultants to distribute a 121-item survey to school nurses in the United States. Overall, 7,971 school nurses responded from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, tribal nations, and US territories. This was the first nationwide survey focusing on the mental health of school nurses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The findings can help school leaders create supportive policies and practices to reduce workplace stressors and increase workplace supports for school nurses.
