School nurses can facilitate the inclusion of students with type 1 diabetes (T1D) at school; this model has been widespread in some countries but not in Italy, which is due to the insufficient number of school nurses that are able to provide medical attention at all times. The National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR) devised a series of aids and support for the reorganization of the Italian National Health System (NHS) through the creation of community houses in addition to family and community nurses (FCNs), who will operate in these structures to promote the integration of the various professional figures and community services. In this study, starting with the needs and suggestions of teachers (No. 79) and parents (No. 48) collected using a survey, we developed a new model for the inclusion of students at school where FCNs who have experience in pediatric T1D have the role of an educator, coordinator, and facilitator' they cannot be on site and available all the time during school hours, so they must make many efforts to improve the school staff's knowledge, intervene to offer training when requested, and solve new emerging problems.
