School Nurse Program

Texas Children’s Hospital’s mission is to create a healthier future for children and women throughout our global community by leading in patient care, education, and research. That included our school nurses.

Texas Children’s Hospital offers monthly school nursing professional development activities/courses based on feedback from school nurses.  To view or register for the school year calendar of school nursing activities, or other continuing education programs, please view below.
