We are proud to announce the new NHSNA School Health Manual

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.  ACCESS THE MANUAL

Influenza Like Illness Reporting

The time it takes to report is very small. The impact is quite large!
All schools are strongly encouraged to report student absenteeism to assist with public health tracking and monitoring of infectious diseases. The NH Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) uses this school-reported data to monitor and evaluate potential outbreaks or clusters of disease in local communities.  Please do your part!  DOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS
