NYSASN Appreciates School Nurses!

This year school nurses face exceptional challenges as schools reopen in the midst of a pandemic. In recognition of those who go above and beyond the ordinary in their efforts to maintain the health, safety and morale of their schools we have created the School Nurse Everyday Hero Recognition. We’re still looking for those school nurses who go above and beyond! Send in your submissions today!

Each month we will review submissions detailing school nurses that deserve special recognition. The application can be filled out telling us the specifics about what you’ve done, or in recognition of a colleague. Each individual deserving of the School Nurse Everyday Hero Recognition will have their name, photo and description of their efforts posted on the NYSASN website.
