Candy Jonasson


As a school nurse with over 22 years of experience, I know firsthand how unsettling it can be to have staff taking care of students who haven't received proper training. I understand the pressure that schools face to meet certain expectations while also dealing with an overwhelming workload.

That's why I created Skills for Schools and have designed our courses to be fast, efficient, and comprehensive. I want to help you get the training done so that you can reduce liability, streamline record-keeping and have peace of mind knowing your staff is fully prepared to care for your students.

With so many new and emerging medications, it can be challenging to keep up with the latest information, but we've got you covered. With over 40 years of experience as a Registered Nurse and CPR instructor, I have the expertise needed to keep your staff up-to-date and fully prepared.

Don't let the stress of training weigh you down - let us help you get it done and give you the confidence to keep your students safe.
