ASNA: Celebrating 40 Years!

2024 Excellence in School Nursing Awards

Posted 30 days ago by Amy Fortner

Greetings Arkansas School Nurses,

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. (The left column of the ASNA webpage.)  Completed applications should be emailed to fortneramy32@gmail.com  The deadline for nominations will be May 20, 2024.

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
