 Decisions by Wisconsin schools to adopt virtual, blended or in-person instruction and the need to change those plans in response to rising COVID infection rates seem to affect us all.  What part does the school nurse have in making these decisions? What role does the school nurse play in protecting the health of students, families and communities during the pandemic ?

 The WNA COVID-19 Wisconsin Nursing Organizational Affiliates* 

has partnered with the Wisconsin Association of School Nurses to assemble a panel of school nurses representing widely different schools and districts throughout Wisconsin to share their professional perspectives on what it means to be a school nurse during school year 2020-2021. Join to learn more about:

  • Duties of the school nurse in virtual vs. in-person instruction
  • School closure decisions and the process that is followed
  • Mental health impact for students, staff, families and school nurses themselves
  • Opportunities for establishing collaborative relationships to support the efforts of school nurses
