It’s almost here…

 

National School Nurse Day will be celebrated on Wednesday, May 10th, 2017! Although school nurses are worth celebrating every day, we pause on this day to acknowledge the specialty practice of school nursing, and to thank you for your unwavering dedication to caring for students, as well as your immeasurable impact on the health of your community!

 Again, this year Governor Nathan Deal has recognized your value and unique role in ensuring the health of Georgia’s students by signing a proclamation designating May 10, 2017 as National School Nurse Day. We are also hoping for an opportunity to meet Gov. Deal for a photo opportunity at the Capitol. The exact day and time are unfortunately often a last minute decision by the Governor’s staff, although we will share those details as soon as we hear more (we have requested May 10th, or any part of Nurses Week for the photo opportunity). We certainly understand that travelling to Atlanta is not possible for all, although everyone is invited. We would love to show Governor Deal the passion and dedication of school nurses by flooding the Capitol that day with as many school nurses present as possible. Please stay tuned!
