May 12, 2021, is National School Nurse Day across the United States. Our school nurses serve as the critical health hub for all students. They ensure that students are ready for learning by managing chronic conditions, identifying and addressing mental health issues, promoting healthy choices and behaviors, connecting families to healthcare providers, handling medical emergencies... and now, navigating through the COVID-19 pandemic.
We honor our school nurses for making a difference in the lives of our children every single day! The theme this year is School Nurses: Championing the Whole Student. School nurses lead the way to support health and ensure that students are healthy, safe, and ready to learn. We are thankful for our nurses and their contributions to our school and the community!
