The Desert Sun — Sixteen California State University, San Bernardino students recently shadowed the Palm Springs Unified School District’s eight school nurses in the second year of collaboration with the university. Each student spent one or two days with a school nurse to experience what the nurse does each day. They also attended at health services staff meeting, participated in a staff development exercise, and were able to debrief their experiences and ask questions.
“This collaboration is important in educating rising registered nurses about what school nursing entails,” said Jane Mills, Palm Springs Unified School District’s director of student services.
