Role Socialization: Designing a Web-Based Program to Orient New School Nurses
Campbell, Tia B.
Journal of School Nursing, v25 n2 p117-125 2009
Traditional orientation programs for school nurses may not meet the needs of nurses new to the specialty. In this era where technology is a major aspect of our daily lives, the Internet offers new school nurses an avenue where information can be accessed at anytime and from anyplace. This article explores a Web-based orientation program that has been developed for new school nurses in Virginia. Modules in the program outline the history of school nursing, advice from an experienced school nurse, school enrollment requirements, scope of school nursing practice, standards of professional performance, and legal issues in school nursing and are available through a single Web portal. Information presented could be customized to provide specific content unique to practice in any state or area. (Contains 3 tables.)
