Dear Donna,

Can you tell me how to obtain certification as a vision and hearing screening technician?


Dear Donna replies:

Dear Karen,

Each state is a little different, and you don't mention where you are located. So I suggest you contact your state chapter of the National Association of School Nurses (www.nasn.org) and check with them. You may need to contact your state department of health to find out what the regulations are where you live/practice and when the training courses are offered.

Best wishes,
