Year of the Nurse 2020: Moving Forward

Excellence in School Nursing Awards

Posted 6 months ago by Phyllis Ermer

Greetings ASNA Members,

It is time to nominate a school nurse who exhibits excellence in school nursing.

There are three categories:

  • School Administrator of the Year
  • School Nurse of the Year
  • LPN of the Year

The qualifications for each category are listed below.  Applications for each of the 3 categories can be found at https://asna.nursingnetwork.com/page/95442-excellence-in-school-nursing-awards  under Nursing Award Applications.  Completed applications should be emailed to afortner@mayflowerschools.org  The deadline for nominations will be May 30, 2022

I know there are so many school nurses who deserve this award. Send in your nominations for the school nurse in your district who supports their students, school staff and works with the community supporting the school. 

I look forward to seeing the many nominations in each category!

Amy Fortner, BSN RN
