Managing Students with Seizures: School Nurse Training

In partnership with the National Foundation and the CDC, this training provides school nurses with information, strategies, and resources to better manage students with seizures. The program helps nurses to recognize seizures and their effects, know current treatment options and their side effects, know appropriate first aid, develop a seizure action plan for a student with epilepsy, and provide training for other school personnel on appropriate care for students with seizures. In addition to a yearly training program in Delaware, school nurses can access the training online by clicking here.
