Celebrated on May 7, 2014, it is National School Nurse Day. Always the Wednesday of National Nurses Week, is the day to honor all school nurses who care for the children in the schools every day.
The theme for National School Nurse Day 2014 is:
“The School Nurse: Caring for Others. Caring for Ourselves.”
Working to remove barriers to learning, school nurses believe that a healthy child learns better. Health, healthy lifestyles and graduation are the goals of more than 73,000 school nurses in the United States.
School nurses lead the way by ensuring a healthier and more sustainable future for the nation’s children.”
