Education

Standards and trends in School Nurse Practice can change rapidly; we strive to provide access to the most current information available to school nurses across Tennessee.  Through our affiliate organization the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) you may enroll in one of the many modules at the  Online Continuing Education Learning Center for free or at a reduced fee, depending on whether you are a paying dues member or not.
