Texas School Nurse Conference November 4 – 6, 2022, Houston, Texas

The purpose of this conference is to provide evidence-based and/or best practice
educational offerings that address identified gaps in knowledge and skills, promote
excellence in clinical practice and improve quality of health care that School Nurses
deliver in schools, which is an independent practice setting. The provided knowledge and
skills encompass the most current guidelines and standards for the management of
chronic and acute health-related conditions including nursing care management and
implications for mental health related issues, diabetes, spinal abnormalities, pediatric
sports injuries, long covid, multisystem syndrome, as well as resiliency, leadership
growth and delegation. The desired outcome of the 2022 TSNO Conference is for nurses to
implement their enhanced knowledge to meet the chronic, acute, and psychological health
needs of students while advocating optimal physical and mental health for academic
success through the building of resiliency. This achievement will be evident through written
feedback from participants by means of the online evaluation tool.
