President’s Message

 

Dear NYSASN Members:

Do you often wonder how you can help students that are over-weight or obese? As we continue to gather BMI statics, we are unfortunately reminded of this pertinent problem.

Memorandum in Opposition to A 8123-B/S6141-D

Relates to the admission of unvaccinated students where parents submit a form stating that such vaccinations are contrary to their religious beliefs.

The New York State Association of School Nurses opposes this proposed legislation.

The New York State Association of School Nurses (NYSASN) is the professional organization representing New York’s school nurses. NYSASN’s mission is to advance the practice of school nursing and enhance the educational success of students by promoting quality school health service.

School nurses are the bridge between education and health in the school setting. School nurses are also responsible for the day to day management of their school’s immunization programs, including record keeping and follow up with parents/guardians in cases where there are outstanding required immunizations. As such, school nurses have a good grasp of (a) the concerns driving this legislation, and (b) how the current law is operationalized in New York’s schools, and (c) the unintended consequences of this legislation. We are thus uniquely positioned to provide our legislators with our perspective and our expert opinion.
