This past week the Maine Department of Education celebrated National Nurses Week by hosting school nurses for National School Nurse Day at the Blaine House for tea where the Department and Maine Association of School Nurses honored our current School Nurse of the Year, Ann Bouchard.
Please consider honoring a deserving colleague by putting in a nomination for the 2018-2019 School Nurse of the Year.
This title provides recognition to an individual who demonstrates leadership in 6 areas of their practice: Care provision, program management, health education, professional development, community involvement, and research.
Please take this opportunity to showcase your School Nurse’s accomplishments and nominate! The individual selected will receive a $500 cash award and be recognized at the Maine Association of School Nurses Summer Institute, the Blaine House Tea and at the National Association of School Nurse annual conference.
We are accepting applications now. Below you can find the nomination form and the information necessary to begin this process:
The application deadline is June 1st (please disregard the erroneous date on the forms).
