The School Nurse Emergency Care Course (SNEC) course is designed to enhance the assessment, triaging, and treatment skills of the school nurse when confronted with the acutely ill or injured student. With the increasing number of urgent health related conditions seen within the changing school environment and the current need to ensure disaster preparedness in the school setting, this course will support the school nurse's core knowledge base in responding to these types of situations.

The intent of this course is to provide nurses who work in the school setting with emergency care education and guidelines that they can integrate into their current practice and use to deliver care to the ill or injured student.

Successful completion of the course requires completion of all 17 course modules, 5 skills demonstrations, course exam (with a passing score of 84%), and course evaluation.

This course has been approved for 13 hours and will expire on August 31, 2024.

Continuing education hours have been approved by the Illinois Department of Public Health Division of Emergency Medical Services and Highway Safety.
