Kids First: New training initiative focuses on Central Texas school nurses

Dec. 19, 2018

The job of a school nurse is much more than taking someone’s temperature or putting a Band Aid on a wound. Increasing numbers of students are entering schools with chronic health conditions requiring management during the school day. School nurses play a crucial role in the seamless, on-site provision of comprehensive health services to children and youth. That’s why they spent part of their time in school learning how to meet these needs. The School of Nursing offers the Kids First training program twice a year. The next session is scheduled for Monday, January 7th, 2019.
