Dear Florida School Nurses,
As we near the end of the year, I urge every one of you to take some well-earned time for yourselves and your families. The holiday season provides a perfect opportunity to unwind, recharge, and savor precious moments with your loved ones. Your unwavering dedication to the well-being of others deserves to be complemented with moments of joy, laughter, and serenity.
As we prepare for the upcoming New Year, please remember to sign up for our annual FASN conference scheduled for February 2-3rd in Wesley Chapel, FL. We have an exciting in-person conference planned, featuring exceptional speakers. I am confident that every nurse will be inspired, and equipped with new insights applicable to their practice. Early bird registration concludes this Friday, 12/22/2023! Click here to secure your spot today!
We've awarded numerous conference scholarships and still have several leadership opportunities within our committees and board of directors. Your time and dedication contribute significantly to the advancement of school nursing, and our voices must be heard. Our advocacy committee has recently convened, closely monitoring proposed bills. More details about our efforts and how you can advocate for student safety and school nurses statewide will be shared soon.
May this holiday season bring you tranquility, warmth, and the opportunity to forge beautiful memories with those who hold special places in your heart. Thank you for your remarkable contributions to the health and happiness of our school communities.
Wishing you a joyful holiday season and a well-deserved break.
Robyn Hathaway, BSN, RN, NCSN, RCIS
