Today is Utah School Nurse Day and we would like to thank all the wonderful school nurses in our district! “The school nurse voice is more powerful than most of us realize. It is when we help a teacher understand how to alter lesson plans so students with food anaphylaxis can participate in all learning activities. It is when we teach children healthy habits so they can grow and thrive,” said NASN President Nina Fekaris, MS, BSN, RN, NCSN. She added, “A professional school nurse is needed in every school to care for every child because school nursing is the foundation for student health.”
Our school nurses are advocates for student health in the forefront of promoting a culture of health in our community. Thank you for making Provo a healthier place for children and families to learn and grow.
