WATCH: Celebrate National School Nurse Day with Your Shared Experiences

You’re likely missing your nurse community these days. With social distancing practices in place and conferences being held virtually or being cancelled altogether, you may feel isolated from your peers. So, to celebrate National School Nurse Day this year and its theme of “Supporting Students in Times of Crisis”, we wanted to provide a space for you to share how you’re supporting students, parents, your school and your community during the pandemic. To show how you are giving back during this crisis, we asked you to share experiences with each other so you can feel that sense of community again.

After we put a call out for your stories, we received many videos and emails from school nurses across the country just like you. We invite you to view three compilations of the videos we received below. We loved all of the submissions so much we decided to share them with you in full. Please enjoy! We hope they bring you a sense of connection with your school nurse community.
