This event is designed to provide an opportunity for school nurses to come together to learn more about topics that impact their role in the care of school-aged children and to celebrate being a school nurse.  SNANC wants school nurses to come away from this experience with increased knowledge and a renewed sense of energy and enthusiasm for school nursing.

Learning outcome statement: 90% of participants will self-report (agree or strongly agree) an increase in knowledge in the assessment, implementation of nursing services and the evaluation of mental health disorders and human trafficking in school age youth.
