State Guidance For Leveraging The Expertise Of School Nurses During And Beyond COVID-19
While school nurses already played an integral role in school communities prior to COVID-19, their roles and responsibilities have been stretched even further during the pandemic. States can leverage new funding from the American Rescue Plan to provide districts with resources to ensure that every school has access to a school nurse. Child Trends and the National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE) are virtually convening state health and education leaders in a series of interactive discussions related to COVID-19 and schools:
- On Monday, April 1, from 3:00 to 4:30 pm ET, Child Trends will hold a panel discussion with national experts on strategies to support staff wellness followed by small group discussions. Register here.
- On Thursday, April 15, from 3:00 to 4:00 pm ET, Child Trends and the National Association of State Boards of Education will host a webinar to review research and CDC guidance related to the role of school nurses in addressing public health emergencies like COVID-19. We will also review trends in state policy and school reopening plans with respect to school nurses. Register here.
