This course is designed for school nurses to develop their personal skills in response to health related matters, disease prevention, chronic and acute medical conditions in a school setting using evidence-based practice and scenario-based learning. Nurses will use online databases and the internet to research best practices to respond to medical conditions such as anaphylaxis, food allergies, diabetes, seizures, and asthma, and other school health services practices. Based on the evidence found and prior knowledge, the school nurse will write a scenario about a specific health related situation and post the scenario to an online Discussion Board in Schoology for peer review and discussion. Additionally, nurses will read and comment on at least two of their peers’ posts for each of the other topics addressed in the Discussion Board activities.
