Results of Unification Vote

During NYSASN’s annual conference in November, membership passed the motion for unification with the National Association of School Nurses. The joining of these two associations will help to strengthen our voice as a professional organization and increase the educational resources available to our membership. The unification process will begin after January 1st, with more detailed information to follow on our website.

Immunization Requirement Updates

On June 13, 2019, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed legislation removing non-medical exemptions from school vaccination requirements for children to help protect the public from the worst measles outbreak in more than 25 years.

These changes reflect the seriousness of ensuring all children are properly immunized. Perhaps the most important change to the regulations is the requirement that physicians are now required to enter the reason for their medical exemptions in NYSIIS. In addition, it requires the use of medical exemption forms approved by the New York State Department of Health or New York City Department of Education; a written statement from a physician is no longer allowed. Read more about the new requirements here.

Annual Conference

NYSASN’s 2019 November Conference, held in Latham, New York, was well attended and received many positive reviews for the educational presentations. During Friday night’s recognition banquet, outgoing president, Gail Hall, was praised for the great work and enthusiasm she brought to the position. NYSASN’s new president, Lou Ann Gleason, gave an inspired speech to the attendees following her swearing in. She is wished much success as she takes over the leadership role for this year.

Planning is already underway for the 2020 conference to be held November 6th and 7th in Batavia, NY. Please mark your calendars as more details will be available later in 2020.
