About Us

The purpose of SHIELD is to prepare school nurses and school health professionals to manage effectively the increasingly complex health, medical, behavioral, and psychosocial issues facing our multi-cultural school-aged population.

SHIELD offers innovative educational programs and leadership opportunities that prepare school nurses and school health professionals to:

  • serve as school health leaders;
  • deliver integrated, collaborative student health services programs;
  • earn continuing education credits that fulfill state licensure and certification requirements; and
  • meet the professional development needs of school health professionals


SHIELD is funded by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and is a collaboration between the Boston University School of Public Health Office of Lifelong Learning (BUSPH) and Boston University School of Medicine Continuing Medical Education/Continuing Education (BUSM CME/CE). Both organizations offer continued education relevant to school and other public health professionals. For more information on these opportunities:
