Maryland delegating nurse course for school nurses

  1. Hello!
    * I am adding this topic to the Maryland board as well*

    I am an RN new to Maryland and while reading the MBON site I found that school nurses need to take a delegating nurse course to be in compliance. (if I understand that correctly) I have been calling area colleges however the courses I have encountered are for assisted living RN's and are not approved for school nurses. I called the MBON and I can never get through to speak with someone.

    Has anyone taken this course and would you be willing to refer me or suggest where I could find this information?

    Thank you

    What school district are you with? Mine (Howard County) did the delegating course with us at orientation.

    Maybe call MoCo Public Schools Health Services and see if they would be willing to let you sit in on a training or give you information on where to get it. I'll ask my HS if, hypothetically, this is something we would do.

    I did check but not much info was given until I become a member. I will become one soon, just not in a position to do so at present.
