National School Nurse Day

National School Nurse Day is an annual observance that falls on a Wednesday during National Nurses Week in May. It is a day dedicated to acknowledging the significance of school nurses and their contributions to the well-being of our children. School nurses serve as vital liaisons between the educational institution and external medical care. They assess how to manage students' injuries, administer in-school treatments when possible, and determine when a child should be released to parents or sent to the hospital. Recognizing the crucial role of school nurses on this day is paramount to understanding their importance in the educational setting.
