    Dear School Nurses, 

     

    My name is Freddi Bastidas, and I am a BSN student at Wenatchee Valley College. Every year, we complete clinical projects that are tailored to improving nursing resources around our area and, ultimately, the entire state.  This email aims to inform you that I am working on a project to gather information regarding competency evaluations for school nurses, and your expertise matters! Attached to this email is a 10-minute survey that will help us better understand your needs and raise awareness toward creating a systematic approach to your evaluation process. Thank you for your contribution! This survey will be open until Friday, March 8.

    Warm regards, 

     

    Freddi Bastidas, RN
