Opioids and Ohio Children: Tools for School Nurses
The Ohio Department of Health will host a conference on July 25 to give school nurses information and resources to support students with prenatal opioid exposure and trauma caused by family opioid abuse. Registration information is available here.
The Department of Health’s School Nursing program offers continuing education opportunities to support the professional development of nurses. In addition to its annual Orientation for Nurses New to Ohio Schools, it offers three regional school nurse conferences, live webcasts, and online and independent study courses. Agency staff members also provide technical assistance by phone or email. Please encourage your school nurses to take advantage of these professional development offerings and other resources.
