School nurses in New Hampshire are getting more help to do their jobs.

The Department of Education recently announced it is increasing efforts to provide school nurses with more training, technical assistance and other resources.

The initiative is being coordinated by Nancy Wells, a nationally certified school nurse and former clinical assistant professor at the University of New Hampshire. The focus will include areas such as student wellness, mental health, alcohol and substance abuse, parental education, school health policy and staff development.
