Study: Nurses need help fighting date violence

– A Ball State University study says school nurses need more training, time and private space to help teenage students cope with dating violence.

The study surveyed 348 K-12 school nurses nationwide to discover obstacles to assisting student victims. It found 55 percent of school health professionals reporting they had assisted a victim of adolescent dating violence in the past two years.

The study led by assistant professor of community health education Jagdish Khubchandani found a school nurse is usually the first adult to interact with young students after a violent incident.

Khubchandani says date violence is a problem that only recently received considerable national attention. He says young people often won’t talk to their parents, but feel safe to open up to a school nurse.
