Virtual Hill Day Starts TOMORROW! Here are tools to get you started--
School nurses are front line health care providers, serving as the bridge between the health care and education systems. School nurses serve as public health sentinels for schools as well as the communities. For many children living in or near poverty, the school nurse may be the only health care professional they access regularly. School nurses are essential in infectious disease surveillance, identification and intervention for student physical and mental health concerns, health screenings, school located vaccinations, and immunization compliance efforts.
NASN’s Virtual Hill Day will create momentum and show support for this important legislation to help children be safe, healthy, and ready to learn. Your participation in NASN’s Virtual Hill Day will show the groundswell of support that school nurses have across the country.
