School Nurse Training
|The learning curve for SNAP Health Center is lower than that of other school health software because its intuitive user interface was designed by nurses, for nurses.||
Find your perfect training fit with four different ways to learn using the format that suits you best. Our experienced trainers provide new and current clients with training guidance for successful implementation and continuing education.
“SNAP Health Center is an invaluable part of my Health Office. The program is so user friendly that training new staff members on documentation takes no time at all. The ability to easily document all visits, medications, screenings, and immunizations is so necessary in a busy office. Gathering data for meetings or reports is so simple with SNAP. Having SNAP Health Office allows me to spend more time with the students and less time worrying about documentation.”
— Colleen Nigzus, RN, MSN, Nurse Leader, Harvard Public Schools, MA
