Fourteen SNOM/NASN members attended the 2015 NASN Annual Conference in Philadelphia June 24-27. Sessions were held on Health Promotion, Leadership/Legal Issues, Practice and Research.
Here are a few of the “nuggets” I learned:
School Nurses care for 98% of children in our country.
Suggested mobile apps for busy school nurses: National Library of Medicine, PubMed, Medline Plus, Drug Information Portal (NIH), Pill Box, KidsHealth and Partners in Information Access for the Public Health Workforce.
Summer is a great time to take a Continuing Ed course or two. NASN offers many (some free)…check out the NASN Learning Center https://www.pathlms.com/nasn
Remember if you have questions or need some support reach out to a SNOM member!
