A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

As a fellow school nurse, I am passionate about the vitally important role we play in ensuring healthy, academically successful students.
But sometimes it can feel overwhelming trying to fit it all in – especially in the context of our busy and often unpredictable days. From Monday morning triage of weekend injuries to panic attacks to hypoglycemic episodes, school nurses today are expected to manage a wide range of conditions effectively and efficiently.

I can't give you more time in your day, but I can equip you with dozens of practical ways to make the best use of your time. As a school nurse with over 30 years of experience, I have designed this live online seminar specifically to help you enhance your practice while working smarter, not harder. I want to provide you with an enormous toolbox of evidence-based tips, tricks and strategies that I have found to be most helpful in my own practice. Whether you are working at school or online, and whether you are new to school nursing, a veteran or anywhere in between, this seminar is for you!

Everything that I share will be practical, useful and applicable to your daily work as a school nurse. I am excited to share my experience, knowledge and skills with you. I know you will find the many timesaving tips and evidence-based strategies that I share to be very useful in your own practice.

Let's work together to help you make time for what matters most and to make a greater difference in the lives of your students. I look forward to meeting you at the seminar!

Sandi Delack, M.Ed, BSN, RN, NCSN, FNASN

P.S. At the end of the day, you will leave feeling reenergized, renewed and excited about the wealth of innovative, use-tomorrow ideas you will receive!
