To address the unmet professional development needs of school nurses throughout Missouri, the SHS partnered with the University of Missouri Telehealth Network, the University of Missouri Sinclair School of Nursing, and a number of subject matter experts (SME) to provide distance learning opportunities through a series of webinars titled NEWS (Nurse Education Webinar Series). 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.
