It's National School Nurse Day

Today, May 9, 2018 is National School Nurse Day! We honor more than 95,000 school nurses in the United States who make a difference in the lives of children every day! The theme this year is School Nurses: Advocates for 21st Century Student Health. School nurses lead the way to advance health and support education by ensuring that students are healthy, safe, and ready to learn.

Let’s celebrate our school nurses today and always!
