Mandated Screening

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. This is one of four training workshops mandated by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health in order to be licensed as a School Nurse.

Future dates for Mandated Screening Trainings:

All of these trainings will take place at the DoubleTree hotel in Westborough, MA. Registration will open as the date approaches. Please check this page for registration information.
