Mentoring First Year Nurses (ME1)
During the first few weeks of school, the School Nurse Mentor will be helping the nurse to become familiar with their school/district/state procedures, policies, and requirements. As time goes on, s/he will help assure that the nurse has completed the certification process and understands what is needs to be done to attain the basic school nurse certificate and complete the mentoring and induction process to earn the continuing license. S/he will introduce the nurse to other staff members and assist
him/her with securing the resources that may be needed to set up their health room to be effective in their new position.
