Since 1972, National School Nurse Day has been set aside to recognize school nurses.
National School Nurse Day was established to foster a better understanding of the role of school nurses in the educational setting.
This year, building on the increased visibility of nurses' contributions National Nurses' Week has been expanded to Nurses Month in May.
School Nurse Day is May 12, 2021.
School Nurse Day: Championing the Whole Student, NASN's School Nurse Day toolkit, can be used in schools and communities to help spread the word about School Nurse Day. The toolkit includes social media posts, images, and information to help celebrate the contributions from school nurses.
