Is your school staff prepared to handle the medical needs of your student population?

When a child is in a medical crisis, everyone panics. It is overwhelming and quite stressful for everyone. Every situation is different, and you must respond accordingly. Current and frequent training will prepare your school staff to deal with the unknown.

We help schools develop strategies that support safe and legal medical management. Basic medical training is designed to equip school staff with the required skills to adequately and confidently respond to students’ physical, social, and emotional health needs while maintaining state and federal compliance.

Our workshops are provided for all school staff by licensed medical professionals and can be easily scheduled for PD days.

Our Programs Include:

Introduction to the disorder
• What signs and symptoms to look for
• How to assess
• How to provide care
• When to call 911
We also offer help with policy development and strategies for implementation.

When schools partner with My School Nurse, we bring peace of mind by assuring that your staff is aware of current standards, legal responsibilities, and legislative requirements.

Staff Training Options:

• Epipen Injections
• Diabetes care
• Breathing Emergencies
• Seizure
• Blood Born Pathogens
• Medication Distribution (2 hr Session)

The training can be customized to specifically address other special issues. We can also fully assess your training needs and help establish policies to ensure you comply with state and federal legislative requirements.

We Also Provide Certification:

• CPR/AED
• First Aid
• Delivery Options

My School Nurse is serious about equipping schools with valuable skills to support their students during a medical crisis. This is why we make it convenient by providing a variety of options to best meet your individual school needs.

We provide four different ways your team can receive training.

• On-Site
• Live Webinar
• Membership Portal
• Summer Training

Our on-site training platform is provided by a registered nurse and can be easily scheduled for Profesional Development. This 4-hour session can be provided throughout the school year or one day. The training topics can be selected based on your individual needs.

Live Webinar

Using the internet, we offer the same excellent training by a registered nurse in the comfort and convenience of your home or office as a “webinar.”

Your instructor will use a combination of screen and webcam sharing to teach the content. You will be able to ask questions via voice or live chat at any time. We will even have follow-up surveys and tests to gauge what you thought of the presentation and what you learned. It will be exactly like you are sitting in the classroom, except no travel is required.

Membership Portal

Our membership portal gives you six-month access to all your medical training content. This Self-Study platform is portable and ready for you anytime—no waiting for the next session or webinar that fits everyone’s schedule. You will have access to a membership portal loaded with your identified sessions.

Summer Training

We know it’s impossible to remove a secretary from their post during the school year. This is why we are scheduling a “Summer” School Support Staff Medical Training conference workshop.

Our full-day conference allows secretaries and support staff to get a break from the day-to-day business and relax as they receive some exceptional professional development. We help schools develop strategies that support safe and legal medical management. Our primary medical training is designed to equip school staff with the required skills to adequately and confidently respond to students’ physical, social, and emotional health needs while maintaining state and federal compliance.

Our training will include the following:

• Policy assessment and development
• Diabetes
• Epi-pen
• Medication Distribution
• Blood Born Pathogens
• Breathing Emergencies

This is an exclusive and intimate training for school staff who are responsible for providing medical support to students.

 

Understanding the MHSAA Requirements: A Coach’s Responsibility

All varsity, junior varsity, and 9th-grade head coaches are mandated to maintain a valid CPR certification, a requirement tracked by the school athletic director. This certification is on par with meeting risk management course requirements for assistant and sub-varsity coaches. The Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) requires athletic directors to confirm these certifications each season through MHSAA.com.

Failure to meet these requirements before the specified deadlines can have significant consequences. Coaches who fall short risk being prohibited from coaching in that season’s MHSAA tournament for their respective sports. Furthermore, they won’t be allowed to be present at the facility where the tournament involving their sports team is held.
