School Nurse Day is May 8, 2018; Maine DOE offers professional development and celebration

Let’s recognize the contributions to student health and learning that school nurses make every day! Students across Maine and the country are able to fully access their education because of the interventions and actions performed by school nurses every day. School nurses optimize student health and learning every day of the year. But, on National School Nurse Day, we take special time to celebrate and recognize the contributions that school nurses are making to the health and learning of our state’s children and the nation’s 50 million children. This year, Maine celebrates National School Nurse Day on May 8, 2018.

Established in 1972, National School Nurse Day is set aside to recognize school nurses and foster a better understanding of the role of school nurses in the educational setting. National School Nurse Day is celebrated on the Wednesday within National Nurse Week and National Nurse Week is always May 6th through May 12th

Start out your School Nurse Day with some professional development and a celebration for school nurses.
