The Center for Professional Development is pleased to announce a webinar series focusing of topics related to school nursing.  Join us for networking, mentorship and learning opportunities.

The first webinar will focus on how to prepare the school health office for the coming year.  It is suitable for substitute and school nurses who are new to the role and for those who would like ideas to share with their team.  The instructors will share tips and techniques for planning, organizing and locating resources for a successful start. 

The following topics will be presented:

  • Planning, ordering and organizing supplies for the coming year
  • Preparing emergency and daily first aid supplies
  • Tips for managing files such as student transfers, emergency cards and gym exclusions
  • Accessing and assessing district policies
  • Locating and reviewing updated Covid policies
  • Administration of medication – forms, permissions and documentation
  • Establishing a district contact list and support systems
  • Exploring opportunities for mentorship


The desired learning outcome is for the nurse who attends to apply the concepts learned to practice when caring for children in the School Health office.
