This training series was developed in 2021. This is considered a next level, comprehensive, systematic approach to a school-based asthma care program.   Prior to this course, we recommend you take our introductory 4-hour training:  Asthma Training for School Nurses - Applying Best Practice Asthma Care in Schools: A Standardized Statewide Approach (above).
