Handledarutbildning för skolsköterskor på nätet
University of Skövde is the only institute of higher education in Sweden providing School Nurse Study Programme. The programme comprises 40 credit points (60 ECTS points) and is given as a distance programme with IT support at the Swedish Net University. This training programme was given the first time during the autumn term 2003 and had 40 participating students from all over Sweden. When the Swedish Net University had a happening at Stockholm University 2003 a project Tutor on the Net: Ophthalmologic Nursing was presented. Based on this project we have developed and put together our project Tutor on the Net: School Nurses . The aim of the project was: to train school nurses in supervision to offer tutors/supervisors a common ground for working with students towards the mutual goal as well as to acquaint them with new pedagogic methods applicable to distance courses with IT support to start and deepen the communication and the dialogue between tutors/supervisors, between tutor/supervisor and student as well as between tutor/supervisor and teacher to create and deepen the network between tutors/supervisors Tutors/Supervisors for school nurse students gathered at University of Skövde during four days of training. The theme during these days was information about School Nurse Study Programme, assessment of student s vocational training practice, loyalty in supervision, introduction to First Class, building network and methods in counselling. A joint seminar with the students took place, too. The evaluation showed that the tutors/supervisors found building network both positive and a proper forum for exchanging thoughts. To contact teachers and students through First Class was found exciting. Unfortunately, due to lack of time, the website did not get the space that was calculated from the beginning. According to this evaluation tutors/supervisors look forward in supervising school nurse students as well as in having the opportunity for exchanging knowledge.
