School Nurse Continuing Education – Managing Students with Seizures

The Epilepsy Foundation and National Association of School Nurses (NASN) partner to provide a school nurse continuing education program titled “Managing Students with Seizures: A Training for School Nurses.” NASN involvement insures that objectives and content are specifically designed to meet the real and immediate needs of school nurses.

Objectives of the program include:

  • Recognize seizures and their impact
  • Know current treatment options and their safe effects
  • Know appropriate first aid
  • Develop a seizure action plan
  • Understand key elements of a training for teachers and other school personnel

This training is designed to provide the school nurse with information, strategies, and resources that enable him/her to better manage students with seizures by:

  • Supporting positive treatment outcomes
  • Maximizing educational and developmental opportunities
  • Creating a safe and supportive environment

Managing Students with Seizures is a continuing education program for school nurses.  The 3 ½ hour train-the-trainer program features a neuro-nurse explaining aspects of epilepsy, seizure types, diagnosis, treatment, and first aid for the student having a seizure. A school nurse presenter will train attendees on methods for re-teaching the curriculum to school administrators, teachers and students.
