National School Nurse Day Is Today

Coffee County School Nurses announce that the National Association of School Nurses, Inc. (NASN) has chosen Wednesday as National School Nurse Day. National School Nurse Day was established in 1972 to foster a better understanding of the role of school nurses in the educational setting. Wednesday, school nursing is recognized as a specialized practice that advances the well-being, academic success, and life-long achievement of students. To this end, over 76,000 school nurses across the country promote health and safety; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student/family capacity for adaptation, self management, self advocacy, and learning.
