ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
Our typical 2-day workshop for School Nurses provides a framework for practice for nurses new to the school nursing role. Due to COVID-19, we are unable to hold this workshop in person. As a result, we are offering essential information for anyone new to school nursing.
Registrants will get concise “need to know” help for the start of the year by electronic format, at least one online meeting mid-year and key resource links. Content will take less than 4 hours to review. Go at your own pace. Topics covered:
Plan to attend the full two-day in person program in August 2021
This program is offered at no cost due to support from the School Nurse Organization of Minnesota (SNOM). Content will be available by mid- August, 2020. Register here to receive the link when it becomes available.
Our Minnesota community response to COVID-19 continues to evolve. A SNOM leadership group has developed this toolkit, providing templates and resources to guide your professional school nurse practice in support of your community. As always, work with your district administrative team throughout this process, using these documents and resources for guidance.
Our community needs continue to change and we will respond with updates for you. We will work with you, navigating these changes. If you have additional resources to share, please email them to the group leader for consideration of community sharing.
We will continue our collaborative work with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) to keep our membership practicing with the most current information.
