What does a School Nurse Information Session mean?
- Our Nurse Educator (RN) will be covering various school nurse topics in order for you to fully understand what is required to be a school nurse or to take on a 1:1 assignment with a special needs child.
- You will learn about the medical conditions that are now prevalent in schools today and the current best practices to provide safe nursing care to students.
- You will learn about the relevant policies and procedures that Horizon requires of school nurses working in NYC and Long Island schools.
- As a result of this session, you will be able to make an informed decision as to whether you are fully interested in school nursing and Horizon will have thoroughly interviewed you for the role.
- If you have previous experience working as a school nurse, this will serve as an update on the current best practices.
