Announcing The School Nurse Leadership Award
January 13, 2014 | Written By: Healthy Schools Campaign
A new award for school nurses!
HSC is launching a new award program to recognize the extraordinary efforts of school nurses that take leadership roles in implementing health and wellness practices in their schools.
For many kids, school nurses are important lifelines to well-being and academic success. But all too often, school nurses go unrecognized. It’s time we change that. This year, The School Nurse Leadership Award presented by HSC honors the unsung heroes who show leadership and help schools create a culture of wellness.
Pre-register here and ensure you are the first to get the application. Applications are available February 5, 2014 and due by March 7, 2014. You may complete the application if you are a school nurse or if you wish to recognize a school nurse in your school or district.
Up to five winners will be announced on May 6, 2014, National School Nurse Day, and will be highlighted to peers across the country. Winners will also receive a $500 School Health gift card to use towards a catalog or online purchase.
