New School Nurse Training

 

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) and the Wisconsin Association of School Nurses (WASN) holds training sessions for registered nurses new to the specialty practice area of school nursing. Our goal is to help the new school nurse in this transition by providing information and resources that can help make their first years more successful. Experienced school nurses may also find this information helpful.

School nurses can access and view the presentations by clicking on the webcast link in the resources column.
