Today's proficient school nurse is often engaged in a practice model that draws upon experience and leadership. Application of evidence-based practice and knowledge is a critical role for the school nurse when guiding local education agencies to improve health outcomes and strengthen school health programs. Participants in this program will be able to explain the inter-relationship between laws, standards, and policies; give examples of school nursing activities within the 21st Century Framework for school nursing practice; apply the principles of a needs assessment and/or program evaluation; and identify an area of policy or practice that may benefit from application of a needs assessment and/or policy evaluation.
We are offering the program at three sites across North Carolina. You will be able to select the date and/or location that accommodates your individual needs.
