The Nebraska Concussion Awareness Act was amended in 2014 to include help for the student returning to school after a concussion. Effective July 2014, this new component established the requirement for a Return to Learn
protocol for the student who has sustained a concussion.
As a licensed health care professional, you can help parents and school staff better understand how to help the injured athlete return to the learning environment.
The Nebraska Concussion Awareness Act Return to Learn protocol recognizes that a student who has sustained a concussion and returned to school may need special attention and assistance until the student is fully recovered.
