Conclusion. The Model of professional practice of school nursing for Colombia: education and health: a care bond, constructed in participative manner with nurses experts in the field and validated with theoretical experts complies with the international guides for the design of this type of theoretical construction and permits guiding the care goals of students, maintain the autonomy of the nurses and their interprofessional participation in this field.
