By Wendy Niskanen posted 11-11-2020 19:40

With the rising awareness of the importance of social emotional learning and research supporting the effectiveness of proactive skill building and mindfulness techniques, understanding the school nurse role in behavioral health is critical. I am pulling together resources for school nurses to facilitate their role in providing proactive behavioral health support for students.  In conversations, it has become clear to me that school nurses need and want more training in this area, so I am gathering information about what is happening in schools and what nurses need. To do this, I need your help! Please take a few minutes to share your insights in this survey. Thank you for taking the time to participate; I am incredibly grateful.
