Penn College’s Nursing Education Center was the site on Monday for Lycoming County School Nurses Professional Development Day. During a morning “skills update,” the school nurses toured the college’s nursing laboratories with Jessica L. Bower, simulation laboratory coordinator. During the remainder of the daylong campus visit, the 40 participants attended meetings and educational sessions by physical therapist Amy Vandermark of UPMC Susquehanna and Tracy Haas-Ungard, programs and services director for North Central Sight Services, and discussed issues in school nursing as submitted by the group.
