Nurse Education

Home care nurses play an essential role in the care of ventilator-dependent children in the home. We are committed to providing training opportunities for home care nurses in tracheostomy and ventilator care. We offer courses for nurse trainers, as well as front-line nurses, several times a year. The class sizes are limited because we believe in providing opportunities for students to participate in hands-on learning activities. Our website is updated as courses are scheduled. Whenever possible, we provide courses free of charge, and most courses award contact hours for nurses.
