2015 47th Annual NASN Conference Philadelphia PA

The 47th Annual NASN Conference, held this year in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania was an energizing time networking with colleagues, listening to stories and learning from experts in our field.  NHSNA President Harriet Davenport presented our delegates at the annual meeting by saying:   "We are from the granite state of New Hampshire, and we are the rock solid foundation of our schools."


New Hampshire’s first school nurse was Elizabeth Murphy. She was the Director of School Nurses in the NH Department of Education for 23 years, starting in 1919 and retiring in 1947. Elizabeth died on 12/2/71 at the age of 93. List below compiled by Bobi Mahoney and updated by Laurie Fleming.

A Note from our Historian

I am the Sunshine/Historian for the New Hampshire School Nurse Association (NHSNA). I am available to send cards to NH school nurses who might need some encouragement, or are sick, or have had a death of a significant other, student or staff.

Feel free to contact me and request these services or just to talk if you need some support and encouragement! When you send me an e-mail, please try to include not only the nurse's name but also an address where a card may be sent.

Thank you all so much for your help. This job would be impossible to do without the input of all of our school nurses supporting and encouraging each other.

Mary Liz Lynch, RN
Cornish Elementary
