Physical education teachers and school nurses are key actors in promoting students’ physical functioning capacity and in utilizing the curriculum-based Move! fitness monitoring system. The purpose of this study is to investigate physical education teachers’ and school nurses’ experiences of multiprofessional co-operation while utilizing the Move! system to promote students’ functioning capacity. The study was conducted with a questionnaire separately for school nurses (N=192) and for physical education teachers (N=359). The comparison of the quantitative questions of the questionnaire utilized the t-test and one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA). The qualitative data was analyzed using a theory-based content analysis method. The results indicate that approximately half of the teachers and nurses who participated in the study had experiences of multiprofessional co-operation in planning the measurements, giving feedback and utilizing the results. In addition, there were multiple differences in how the co-operation had occurred between teachers and nurses. Mutual time and interaction were the key factors influencing the co-operation process. In the future, multi-professional co-operation should be given a greater role in teachers’ and nurses’ basic and continuing education programs in order to utilize the expertise of these professionals in promoting pupils’ physical functioning capacity in basic education.
