Many school nurses are concerned that their schools are unprepared for medical emergencies, especially when they are away from campus or cover multiple campuses. Much of this concern comes from a lack of resources, both in supporting personnel and in having the tools to respond to a medical emergency.
Med-E Ready: School Nurse Series will help you conquer these issues. By adapting your school's current emergency procedures and identifying preparedness gaps, your school can be prepared for a medical emergency. Your leadership is the key, and Med-E Ready is your roadmap.
Upon completion of Med-E Ready Training for School Nurses, you will be able to:
- Clearly define school-based medical emergency response plan (MERP) and team (MERT).
- List the tasks that need to be completed by a MERT.
- Guide your school in using Med-E Ready to develop and implement your school's MERP and MERT.
Plus, you'll learn strategies for onboarding colleagues including leadership!
