If you have hired or will be hiring a new nurse for your school over the summer, be sure to include THIS workshop in their new hire work plan. The New School Nurse Orientation is a specialized program, designed to help nurses transition into the educational setting which is very different than hospital, urgent care, or other medical settings. Some of the topics included in the newly revised sessions include a review of the School Nursing Scope and Standards of Practice, certification requirements, resources, a review of Maine’s Nurse Practice Act, medication administration policies in schools, screening requirements, concussion management, communicable diseases, and much more. The 2-day session in August will be followed by additional virtual support sessions via Zoom, the first scheduled for September 26.
When: August 14-15, 2019
Where: Bangor Savings Bank, 5 Senator Way, Augusta Maine
2nd Floor Conference Room
Cost: $60 for both days to cover the cost of lunch and materials
