Lions Empowering School Nurses for Children with Diabetes

Purpose

Lions Empowering School Nurses for Children with Diabetes: A Delaware Partnership is a comprehensive eLearning strategy designed to address the training needs of school nurses and school staff members who may be called upon to assist a student with diabetes. Participating schools receive instant UNLIMITED access by ALL district staff to 3 levels of diabetes training, so the right program can be delivered to every staff member at any time. In addition to the fully-narrated and interactive eLearning programs, you will also gain access to diabetes skills videos, important forms, templates, and many other valuable resources.

A Delaware Partnership

The Lions Empowering School Nurses for Children with Diabetes is a partnership between the Delaware Lions Clubs District 22D, the Delaware Department of Education and the Delaware Diabetes Coalition.  It is a free diabetes training module for all Delaware schools paid for through a grant from the Lions Clubs International Foundation.  Modules are open to all school staff, contractors (i.e. school bus drivers, etc.) and parents of children* living with diabetes.

*Children must be affiliated with a Delaware public, private, parochial, or charter school district.
