A new online orientation has been developed for school nurses in Utah. This is presented as a Canvas course in collaboration with the Utah State Board of Education and can be done in any order at the participant's convenience. This course is open to all school nurses in Utah, whether new or experienced. The course can be found here.
The purpose of this orientation is to provide current, up-to-date information regarding school nursing practice in Utah. Just as there are geographical and population differences among school districts and charter schools, it is understood that roles and responsibilities of school nurses may vary as well. It is impossible to provide specifics for each school. This is provided to help school nurses understand the goal we are all striving for which is that all Utah students will be healthy, safe, and ready to learn.
