National School Nurse Day
National School Nurse Day is always the Wednesday of National Nurses Week, this is the day to honor all school nurses who care for the children in the schools every day. HAPPY SCHOOL NURSE DAY!
Likely we have all had to do it – see the school nurse at least one time within our lives, whether it is for any legitimate illness or simply as a ploy to get away from school early. It’s to forget, though, just how important she’s towards our kids and their fellow school buddies. We need to remind her that people don’t take her efforts as a given, there’s a unique day annually where we are able to celebrate her in style: School Nurse Day! This holiday is well known all across the globe, and pupils and instructors everywhere receive the chance to express their gratitude for that love and care the nurses provide them with every day. Here’s to individuals diligent nurses, and also to the great health they promote.
On July 4, 1968, the National Education Association established the Department of School Nurses (DSN), an association dedicated to the advancement of school nursing practice and the health of school-age children. Over the next few years, each state established its own school nurses association under the umbrella of the Department of School Nurses. School nurses are now nationally recognized and celebrated for contributing to the health and well-being of the nation’s students.
