School Nurse Clinical Competency Workshop


Calling all school nurses in Western North Carolina and beyond as well as pediatric nurses and teachers! Please join us for a dynamic day of learning in MAHEC's Simulation Center. This workshop will combine lecture and simulation to educate school nurses on how to handle common school injuries, complex medical needs of students, and support the mental health of children and teenagers. Simulation scenarios and skill stations will be used to give participants hands on experience and real time feedback to better prepare them to handle childhood diseases and emergency situations. A light breakfast as well as lunch is included in the registration cost. Also, please call registration to see about getting a discounted rate for 5 or more nurses who want to attend from the same school nurse program.
