Comprehensive Concussion Education for School Nurses

This is a free course if taken without the 2 CE credits. Choose the free link as indicated below.

Increasing public awareness and the development of state legislation related to concussions have created a need for school nurses to be competent in recognizing and managing concussions in the school setting. Do you feel comfortable with your knowledge around concussions and how to care for a child that may have experienced this injury? If you would like to learn more about concussions and the most recent recommendations on returning students to learning and sports, this is a great opportunity.

A team of healthcare providers at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago has developed a Nurse Concussion Course that will cover many important aspects of managing a concussion in the school setting.

The course includes eight modules:
1. Concussion Etiology
2. Concussion Epidemiology
3. Long-term Effects
4. General Concussion Treatment
5. Return to Learn Protocol
6. Return to Sports and Return to Play Protocol
7. Healthcare Provider Roles
8. Concussion Policies.
