NASN needs YOUR feedback about the developing Framework for 21st Century School Nursing Practice.
Good news to share-and an ask-
As many of you know, NASN has been working on a framework to help explain the skills of school nurses for the 21st century. We have written an article that was published in the NASN SN July 2015 and are asking for feedback via a short online survey-to see if the Framework is clear, truly depicts school nursing in the 21st century, and is applicable to practice.
We need feedback from all school nurses-NASN and non-NASN members, public and private, etc. We want positive as well as constructive comments. We have worked with Sage and they have agreed to open the article for all to access through Aug 17th! We will extend the comment period through Aug 17th as well.
We are hoping that you can send a message (such as the one below) to your affiliate/state listserv encouraging them to read the articles and participate in the survey.
NASN needs YOUR feedback about the developing Framework for 21st Century School NursingPractice. School nursing has changed over the years to meet the complex healthcare needs of a diverse student population. This framework provides the key principles of school nursing practice and provides focus and guidance for the practicing school nurse to support student health and academic success in a healthy and safe school environment. Read the article (http://nas.sagepub.com/content/30/4/218.full.pdf+html) in NASN School Nurse and then go to the survey link in the article to provide feedback. (The article is open to all and, along with the survey, is available through August 17, 2015). Let your voice be heard!!!
Hope you are having a great summer.
