Celebrate School Nurses on National School Nurse Day
Posted on May 6th, 2015
Today, May 6th, is National School Nurse Day. Since 1972, National School Nurse Day has been set aside to recognize school nurses. National School Nurse Day was established to foster a better understanding of the role of school nurses in the educational setting. National School Nurse Day is celebrated on the Wednesday within National Nurse Week and National Nurse Week is always May 6th through May 12th.
Over 140 school nurses statewide work with Healthy Learners supporting the Healthy Learners mission. Not only is the school nurse invaluable to the children, the school nurse is vital to the Healthy Learners service delivery. Without qualified and experienced school nurses taking the necessary steps to meet the critical needs of the children, 1,000’s would not have received medical care to stay healthy and succeed in life.
It is with heartfelt gratitude that Healthy Learners recognizes and thanks its school nurses and nurses everywhere. Join us in celebrating school nurses!
