The second category was work health promotive with the subcategories interpret signs, impact of the conversation and reduce health hazard. The third category was challenge challenges in work with the subcategories build confidence in relationship, time for presenting knowledge and cooperation for health prioritization. Conclusion: There is a lack of insight and knowledge among students and parents in the importance of sleep and how it is affected by the use of digital media. The school nurses see a need to be more visible in the classes and parent meetings in order to establish relationships that are trustful towards both students and parents and the foundation for mediation of knowledge and together aim for change. There is a need for in depth knowledge also within the school health service and also more time to work with promoting health and prevention with respect to adolescent’s sleep habits in relation to the use of digital media. Especially since the lack of sleep can have negative consequences for the individual but also for the society in general. Keywords: Adolescent, digital media, school nurse, sleep habits
