Essentials for new school nurses 


Date: October 06, 2017


Why you should attend? The boarding environment is a very unique and specialised one that requires a great deal of adaption from other nursing and medical situations. This seminar will cover all legal context and Duty of Care, inspection requirements, roles and boundaries and health profiles. It will focus on the key aspects of the nurse’s role in boarding school. All medical staff new to the boarding environment would benefit from this course which will give delegates an insight in adapting their skills to the boarding school situation. The speaker has a wealth of experience in this area and will be able to ease your transition and initial induction away from your current experience into a boarding setting.

Jill’s change of direction into school nursing enabled her to rekindle her love of nursing by making a marked difference to the students in her care by reinventing the medical centre and its provision at CLC.  She and her team are an integral part of the Pastoral team, working with students, staff and key stakeholders to ensure that the overall physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing of each individual pupil is at the centre of all they do. Jill is a strong advocate for the nursing profession suggesting the unique skills and qualities nurses possess make them the perfect advocates for the students in their care.
