Welcome to MacGill School Nurse Supplies!


Share Your School Nurse Story with “A Long Way from Henry Street”

If you’re a longtime school nurse and MacGill customer, you may remember our book, “A Long Way from Henry Street”. For years, we collected stories written by school nurses just like you about their experiences of keeping children healthy and happy.

Today, school nurses nationwide continue to bring the same value to their jobs as the first public school nurse, Lina Rogers Struthers, did in 1902. However, much has changed. “A Long Way from Henry Street” is a book that brings to light the changing role of school nurses and the new challenges that face them today. Click here to learn more about the meaning and history of Henry Street. And if you’re interested in owning a copy of “A Long Way from Henry Street Volume 2”, you can add one to your next MacGill purchase, free of charge (Item #72012).

It has been almost a decade since MacGill published the last volume of “A Long Way from Henry Street”. Even in the last few years, and especially so in 2020, school nursing has continued to change. That’s why we’ve decided to revive this project! Our hope is to provide a place for school nurses to share their experiences with their community. We’ll be publishing your stories in our upcoming flyers and right here on our blog. Click here to read the story featured in our 2021 Spring Flyer.
