Nurse Education Webinar Series (NEWS)

State/Jurisdiction: Missouri
Setting: Virtual Workplace
Population: Medical & Public Health Professionals
Topic Area: Telehealth Workforce Development
NPMs: NPM 11: Medical Home

To address the unmet professional development needs of school nurses throughout Missouri, School Health Services partnered with the University of Missouri Telehealth Network, the University of Missouri Sinclair School of Nursing, and a number of subject matter experts to provide distance learning opportunities through a series of webinars titled NEWS (Nurse Education Webinar Series). These webinars focus on providing the latest information related to managing children in the school setting with health issues and/or special health care needs. A priority of the project was to include flexibility for school nurses to participate. The option to view archived sessions allows the nurses to view them anytime as well as use the webinar(s) in a group setting for professional development and staff education.
