Together, we are a larger voice with a clearer message.

Welcome back to the 2019 - 2020 School Year!
What is your special skill and how can you give back to nursing in a way that will enhance your practice as well as the practice of others? Can you serve as a mentor, or spend some time on a special project committee? Would you be willing to join advocacy efforts for school nursing, either by communicating what we do in our role to other professionals, or by showing up at the legislature in Concord to speak out about important health care issues?

If you take some time to give back, you strengthen our profession as a whole. Together, we are a larger voice with a clearer message.    READ MORE HERE

    Dr. Erin D. Maughan serves as the Director of Research for the National Association of School Nurses (NASN), where she co-leads the development of school nurse outcome indicators and uniform data points. She launched NASN’s acuity workload taskforce, and co-led the creation of NASN’s Framework for 21st Century School Nursing Practice. She also teaches public health nursing as an adjunct associate professor at Georgetown University.

    Erin Writes:   "A glass ceiling or cage is the notion that certain groups -- mostly women or minorities -- are held back, often due to their own beliefs.  Yet there are limiting beliefs and actions that also put school nursing in a glass cage. "
    Come explore with Erin the actions needed to break the glass cage that is holding School Nursing back as a profession.
