Statement of View
As NASN moves forward with new strategies, the role and responsibilities of the nominating committee members are vital. Candidates need to have the dedication, knowledge, leadership, and devotion to be qualified. Leaders who are willing to give their time and professional skills to NASN.
NASN needs to have dedicated leaders who will continue to be a strong voice advocating for school nurses and the students they serve. Now that I have served on NASN’s Board of Directors, I have seen firsthand why it is important to have the best qualified candidates to run for office. If I am elected to the nominating committee my goal will be to find the most qualified dedicated leaders who will continue to grow NASN and work for school nurses and students. As NASN pushes to the future it will require leaders with the vision to take school nursing to the pinnacle for our students and the nurses we serve.
School nurses are on the front line of healthcare in our schools today. We are tasked with providing the best possible health services to our students. School nurses make an impact in the education arena for students.
Today school nurses are facing so many challenges in our practice, that we need qualified, competent strong leaders, who have the professional knowledge and skills to guide our practice into the future. The responsibility of the nominating committee is to find these individuals within NASN. Recruiting the most qualified leaders from all members is the responsibility of the NASN nominating committee. It is important for the nominating committee to bring forth candidates who will engage to promote membership, who will partner with other organization and who will network to make NASN STRONG.
