May 8 – National School Nurse Day

2023-2024 - 2024 05 08 school nurse day

National School Nurse Day honors all school nurses who care for the children in the schools every day. School nurses promote learning through healthy children.

School nurses are often the first place a student thinks to go when they don’t feel well or have been hurt. But they also provide a wealth of information that supports a successful education as well. The observance reminds us of all the reasons the nurse is available to your school. They provide more than band-aids for scrapes on the playground and check for fevers when a child shows the first sign of illness. School nurses are first responders for medical concerns and administer mid-day doses of medication.

All the roles of a school nurse lead to healthier students who are better prepared for learning. 

From all of us at KPBSD, Thank you for all you do!
