We Need Board and Committee Members

The New Hampshire School Nurses' Association functions because of the dedication of  school nurses who volunteer to serve on committees.  We hope you will consider joining  one of our committees.  As NHSNA Board and Committee members, we have the  opportunity to define practice and serve as leaders for nurses in every school across our  state. 

Our organization:

  • organizes school nurse continuing education conferences. 
  • works with legislators on laws that define and guide our practice at school 
  • serve as consultants for the Department of Education, the Board of Nursing, the NH School Boards Association, members of the New Hampshire Senate and House of Representatives.  
  • Mentors new school nurses through our School Nurse essentials workshops

It is a privilege serving on the Board of NHSNA, as well as a wonderful opportunity for personal and professional growth. The things you learn by being a part of this group will enhance your knowledge and skills as you serve your school community.

Currently we have positions open and would be happy to discuss opportunities with NHSNA.  Please email us at nhschoolnurses@gmail.com.  We would love to hear from you.  

HISTORY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE SCHOOL NURSES' ASSOCIATION

New Hampshire’s first school nurse was Elizabeth Murphy.  She worked for the city of Concord. She became the Director of School Health Services in the Department of Education for 23 years starting in 1919 and retiring in 1947. Under her leadership, she helped to unite small districts so that they could hire a full-time school nurse with a salary commensurate of teachers in that same district. School nurses were considered as much a part of the team as the teacher. She was also influential in revising the Health and Sanitation Statutes under the laws of public schools in 1921. The motivation for these changes was partially based on the number of “physical rejects” that was at an all-time high during  World War 1. These statutes remained in effect until they were revised in 1971.  READ MORE


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."
