The State School Health Nurse Consultant will precept a current school nurse in a graduate school project that supports the completion of the current revision of the NC School Health Program Manual. This project involves updating and editing content to assure consistency with professional standards, requirements and relevant statutes, assuring current references in support of content, and drafting sections for manual inclusion on current issues in school health and school nursing. The initial work on the manual draft has been completed by the consultant team. This opportunity should fulfill the requirements for a leadership and/or policy course that requires the student to participate in something that affects local and state policy in the field, or that guides and directs school nursing practice in North Carolina. It is anticipated that the project would take a semester to complete. For information please contact Ann.Nichols@dhhs.nc.gov , 919-707-5667.
