NN/LM PNR recently learned that Network member, Dolores Judkins, received special recognition from the Multnomah Education Service District (MESD) for her professional collaboration with their Department of School Health Services. In a letter we received from Janice Gratton, the Board Chairperson for MESD, she states that “Dolores’ ongoing commitment to providing information and growing internet navigation competency and information resources for school nurses has supported the advancement of clinical school nurse practice and ultimately student’s health and safety across the state of Oregon.”
Dolores was recognized at the MESD Board meeting on December 19, 2006. Ms. Judkins has been working with the Department of School Health Services since the late 1990s. She has obtained several grants to develop trainings for the use of internet resources and focuses her work on the needs of the school nurse. Janice Gratton goes on to state, “Today, for best practice, school nurses must continuously use the web and be discriminating to ensure use of evidence-based information. Dolores facilitated staff’s readiness for today’s professional practice obligations.”
