    Lunch is sponsored by our friends at

    3.5 Contact Hours

    Description: As School nurses we must navigate rules, policies, and regulations that apply to the educational setting, while also adhering to the state Nurse Practice Act. As the only nurses in the building, we often face challenges with non-nurse administrators related to role clarification, accountability, and delegation of nursing tasks to unlicensed assistive personnel.

    The New Hampshire School Nurses’ Association will facilitate a discussion of legal and / or ethical issues facing NH School Nurses.  At registration, you will have the opportunity to pose a question or senario to the panel.

    Our panel members are:

    • ·       Diana Fenton, Esquire
           Legislation, Laws and Rules
           NH Department of Education
    • ·       Denise Nies MSN, RN, BC
    •      Board Administrator
           NH Board of Nursing
    • ·       Nancy Wells MS, RN, NCSN  
           Former NH DOE School Nurse Coordinator
    • ·        Lorri Hayes
             Southern Region UniServ Director 
              NH National Education Association

      Also included as part of the day: 
    • ·       Backpacks for your students! The NH Department of Education employees hold a yearly drive to collect backpacks for NH children.  They know that School Nurses are on the front-lines of identifying students who need them. There will be several backpacks given to each attendee to bring back to their districts.
