Celebrate School Nurses Day • May 11, 2016
- School nurses juggle a complex range of medical and social issues, from communicable diseases, stress and chronic illnesses (diabetes and asthma) to accidents, injuries and school safety and often moving from school to school throughout the district.
- For some students, the school nurse is the only health care professional they ever see.
- School nurses’ work goes beyond the nurse’s office – they interact with teachers, doctors, child study teams, administrators, school counselors, social workers, coaches, parents, police, substance abuse professionals and other School-Related Professionals.
We are proud to salute our nurses — you deserve special recognition for your efforts in leading the way for your patients, students and for a healthy nation. Thank you!
