Conducting health screenings according to approved standards are an important school nurse responsibility. This training provides information on the regulations and practice standards for conducting vision, hearing, Body Mass Index, and postural screening of school-aged children. This training includes a session to practice skills and demonstrate competencies. To become familiar with local district equipment, participants are encouraged to bring hearing and vision equipment from their own schools, if available.
