In 2020, a significant portion of experienced school nurses left the industry due to the pandemic. The positions have since been filled by nurses who have never been or practiced in the discipline of school nursing. The numbers of school nurses who are new to school nursing are quickly learning how to handle the level of autonomy in the discipline, especially centered around emergency response procedures of all kinds. This manifests in a large gap in knowledge affecting practice.
As a result of participating in this educational activity, learners will be able to:
- Identify three evidence-based practices in caring for students with allergy and anaphylaxis.
- Describe how to utilize the toolkit in daily school nursing practice.
- Identify a plan for implementation of the CPG recommendations and toolkit resources for the upcoming school year.
This continuing education program is a practice and knowledge NCPD program developed to meet the educational needs of registered nurses who are interested in child, adolescent health, community/public health, and school nursing.
