Stewards of Children® Session at NASN2018

By Carol Hogue posted 06-15-2018 17:54


As awareness of child sexual abuse in our communities grows, school nurses are poised to play a vital role in preventing and responding to suspicions of abuse. The Adverse Childhood Experiences study illustrates that abuse can be devastating, both during childhood and later in adult life. By preventing child sexual abuse, you can positively impact the lives of children and contribute to their brighter futures as adults.

Statistics show that school personnel identify more child abuse than any other profession, including law enforcement. As a school nurse, the lasting relationships you develop with students can make you a trusted adult in their eyes. You are also a mandated reporter and should understand your legal obligations and what to do to keep kids safe.

Stewards of Children® teaches you practical ways to prevent child sexual abuse or intervene if abuse is suspected. By signing up for the Stewards of Children® session at NASN2018 you not only will learn how to protect children, but will receive two contact hours by an accredited provider of the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

This session will be offered twice on Friday, June 29, 2018 during the preconference day of NASN2018.
