National School Nurse Day - May 9
Wednesday, May 9, 2018 is National School Nurse Day
The theme this year, Advocates for 21st Century Health, is reflective
of the significant roles school nurses have in the healthcare in their
school communities, as well as in modeling health and resiliency. That
healthy children learn better is a simple truth, and school nurses work
to remove barriers to learning.
Beaverton School District’s own
Nina Fekaris is the President of the National Association of School
Nurses (NASN). The National Association of School Nurses is a non-profit

incorporated in 1977, representing school nurses exclusively. NASN has
more than 15,000 members and 50 affiliates, including the District of
Columbia and overseas school nurses. The NASN mission is to advance
school nurse practice to keep students healthy, safe and ready to learn.
Please take this opportunity to recognize our amazing school nurses in the Beaverton School District.
