School Nurse Summer Institute: A Model for Professional Development
Neighbors, Marianne; Barta, Kathleen
Journal of School Nursing, v20 n3 p134-138 2004
The components of a professional development model designed to empower school nurses to become leaders in school health services is described. The model was implemented during a 3-day professional development institute that included clinical and leadership components, especially coalition building, with two follow-up sessions in the fall and spring. Coalition building is an important tool to enhance the influence of the school nurse in improving the health of individuals, families, and communities. School nurses and nursing educators with expertise in the specialty of school nursing could replicate this model in their own regions. (Contains 2 tables.)
