Schools depend on nurses for their clinical knowledge and judgment to provide health care to students, and also to serve as a link between school staff, students, parents and the community.  Most importantly, nurses deal with sick children at school, and children may be sick due to a number of reasons including pest or pesticide-related sensitivities or injuries. Therefore, it is very important that school nurses are aware of the common pests, pesticides and the risks posed by them. This topic has been conveniently divided into two presentations for learning at your own pace. There is also a version of these presentations that are designed to be downloaded and modified to be used in an in-class scenario.  Both of these versions are specifically aimed at providing school nurses with the essential information regarding common pests in schools and how to deal with them.
