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 specialty nursing organization, first organized in 1968 and 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.
