Asthma is the most common chronic disorder in American schoolchildren, and school nurses play a critical role in helping students and families manage it. This webinar will help school nurses create and evaluate asthma action plans for their students. Stock EpiPens, and standing orders will be discussed, and we will end with Q&A. Dr. Ben Francisco returns with advice to help schools be Asthma Ready(TM). Dr. Cindy Devore, Dr. Lani Wheeler and Sally Schoessler, Director of Nursing Education at National Association of School Nurses share their experience and expertise.
