One hundred and twenty years ago, school nursing in the United States began in New York City. Henry Street Settlement and NASN collaborate to celebrate this milestone!
I invited Mataeo Smith to write this guest blog post. Mataeo is a marketing assistant at Henry Street Settlement. He graduated in 2021 from State University of New York Plattsburgh with a bachelor’s degree in journalism. Mataeo aspires to be a reporter at a reputable publication. He shares that during high school, a school nurse treated his sprained ankle. I am pleased to welcome Mataeo Smith to this space.
