Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, PA
On Friday, September 1st, Eagles Charitable Foundation will ensure that 260 nurses from Philadelphia are properly trained and certified to administer vision screenings at the 7th annual School Nurse Professional Development Meeting. Hosted at Lincoln Financial Field from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm, nurses will rotate as a group through various skills assessment sessions and receive extensive, in-depth training to certify them as vision screeners. Upon completion of both an online educational module and an in-person skill assessment, each nurse will receive a national vision screening certification valid for three years.
Sponsored by the Independence Blue Cross Foundation, the School Nurse Professional Development Meeting has secured Prevent Blindness – the nation’s leading volunteer eye health and safety organization – to administer the vision screening training and certification.
