Healthy kids set the stage for strong communities, and students who don’t feel well can’t reach their full potential. That is why school-based health is a strategic focus area for the Foundation, and we are committed to supporting school nurses who are at the intersection of health and education. School nurses are highly trained medical professionals, yet most people don’t fully understand their role.
We’ve created this video — "A Day in the Life of a School Nurse" — to help illustrate the varied, robust, and important nature of their jobs. Please share the video with anyone you can — administrators, educators, parents, and others!
Also, WVIA will be highlighting the crucial role of the school nurse on their Keystone Edition: Health program on Monday, November 22 at 7:00pm. Be sure to tune in and spread the word about the program. You can learn more about Keystone Edition Health and watch the episode preview here.
