School Nurse Resources
School nurses are an important part of the care of children and teens with type 1 diabetes. Whether you’ve never had a student with type 1 or you’ve had many, Camp Kudzu hopes to be just as much of a resource to you as you are to your students
Created just for school nurses, this page is full of resources including:
- Information about Kudzu programs, including a year-round calendar released late fall each year
- Continuing Nursing Education with FREE contact hours offered several times throughout the year
- Information for families and students you serve, including information for newly diagnosed families
- PDFs of resources for school staff about type 1 diabetes
Should you have requests or ideas for additional information that would be helpful to you in your work, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Last, but certainly not least, we would love to see you at our camp programs. For more information in volunteering, click HERE.
