Please join me in thanking our excellent school nurses for their devoted work and commitment to the mission of helping people maximize their potential. The Governor has established Monday, May 8 as School Nurse Day in Virginia. It’s a great time to recognize our nurses, and others across the Commonwealth, for meeting the needs of today’s student by improving the effective delivery of health care in our schools.
Specifically, the Governor’s resolution celebrates nurses for:
- Advancing the well-being, academic success, and life-long achievements of all students by providing a critical safety net for children
- Serving as liaisons to the school community, parents, and health care providers on behalf of children’s health
- Supporting the health and educational success of children and youth by developing and providing programs and leadership
- Understanding the link between health and learning and making a positive difference for children every day
Our special thanks to these fine individuals who are an integral part of our educational program.
