Thank your nurse

School nurses are health care professionals who care for a wide range of student needs from dispensing prescribed medication, ensuring vaccinations are up to date and taking care of them when they feel ill during the school day. They also work with families to address other factors that might impact student health.

That is why on May 8—during National School Nurse Week—their contributions in support of student health and academic success are recognized. This year, Region 10 will hold a special event on May 8 to recognize school nurses from the counties that make up the region. 

If you would like to recognize a school nurse or say thank you during the week or on May 8, the National Association of School Nurses has a toolkit schools can use.
