This course was developed by the Colorado Department of Education School Nurse Specialists Team as a learning resource to support the success of new school nurses as you begin your career in school nursing.  This course does not replace the live and interactive multi-day summer School Nurse Orientation course, or SNO, which school nurses are also encouraged to attend.  Although the intent is for this course to be taken by new school nurses, it may also be useful for experienced school nurses or other school staff to help understand the specialty of school nursing in Colorado.

The seven microlearning units (10-20 minutes each) in this course can be taken in the order chosen by the participant.  The entire course length is approximately 3 hours.  A certificate of course completion will be available to those who complete all units and the evaluation.  This course does not provide credit hours.

To access the course:
  • If you have an existing CDE Moodle LMS account, log in and self-enroll in the course.
