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.
National School Nurse Day is celebrated on the Wednesday within National Nurse Week, which is May 6th - May 12th each year.
School Nurse Day is May 6, 2020.
NASN has put together a toolkit you can use in your schools and communities to help spread the word about School Nurse Day. The theme for this year is School Nurses: Supporting Students in Times of Crisis. The toolkit includes social media posts, images, and information to help celebrate the contributions from school nurses.
