The purpose of this investigation was to survey public school nurses’ preparedness to participate in a hearing aid monitoring program. Thirty nurses completed a 19-item questionnaire surveying their prior experience with, attitudes toward, and knowledge of hearing aids, as well as their basic skill level with hearing aids, hearing aid batteries, and earmolds. Results of the survey indicated some deficiencies in key areas. Suggestions for preservice, inservice, and continuing education programs for nurses are provided.
