A Football Wife’s Research Study for the Love of the Games:

School Nurses’ Knowledge on Assessment of Concussions and Head Injuries in Athletes

Sandra Merriweather BSN, RN, PHN, MSN

Head injuries cause temporary interference with brain functioning in children and pose serious health risks. Often times, these injuries are ignored or unrecognized, not realizing it may possibly cause permanent disabilities or death, but with continued research, education, early treatment/interventions and collaboration, we can promote safety and awareness while both saving lives and avoiding sedentary lifestyles.

My compassion for children’s health and research is great just as well as honoring and supporting our sports celebrities in their dedication and contributions within various communities in this area.Their faithfulness and accomplishments are recognized, therefore, I am dedicating this research project to the professional celebrity sports players and the pilars of sports. Also, my project would not have been made possible if it weren’t for all of the Registered Nurses who sacrificed their time in making my research project possible and a dream come true. Thank You All!
