The School Health Manual was created by Nancy Wells and Martha Judson on behalf of the New Hampshire School Nurses’ Association (NHSNA) in order to provide resources on the most important issues and topics for school nurse practice. The NHSNA Board of Directors has always been there, and will continue to be there, for school nurses, partners and our communities. We want to thank all the NHSNA members for supporting their professional organization. NHSNA is the voice of New Hampshire School Nursing and the manual continues that commitment to excellence.
