National Nurse Day - May 7, 2014

Last Updated on May 6, 2014 at 3:21pm |

National School Nurse Day will be celebrated on Wednesday, May 7, 2014, as a specialty during National Nurses Week. Their expertise and the many duties which are provided by the school nurses and the school health staff are greatly appreciated.   School nurses address the daily medical and health needs of the students and assist staff and families, whether it is the sudden onset of illness, injuries and accidents or an involved medical condition of a student. They encourage the school to focus on wellness and prevention, helping to provide a healthy school environment and improved attendance rates.
 
Most of all, it is recognized that the health and well-being of the students are essential to learning and student achievement. Please help to provide a special THANK YOU on Wednesday, May 7th, for the commitment and dedication demonstrated by the school nurses and the school health staff.
