On behalf of the Florida Association of School Nurses, we send best wishes for National School Nurse Day - May 12, 2021. This has been an exceptionally challenging year for all School Nurses. Your hard work is appreciated by each and every one of us serving in FASN and we know what a critical champion you are for your students! Please forward this message on to all school nurses, whether they are FASN members or not. We want everyone to feel supported on this special day!
We'd like to also share a message from the School Health Services Program Office: It's been a challenging year and school nursing has truly been visible in the public eye. As this school year is winding down, if nothing else we truly hope you can enjoy as much as you can this month and our day, National School Nurses Day- May 12, 2021. Please see the attached Florida Nurses Month Proclamation and acknowledgement of School Nurses Day. Please know that we are anticipating a number of activities specific to School Nurses Day statewide. Please make sure to pay attention to your work office phone and work cell phone, just in case a school nurse in your district is chosen to highlight school nurses in Florida. As always, if you have any questions please feel free to reach out to your liaison. Again, Happy School Nurses Day and best wishes to all for hanging in there through this school year!
