Thank you so much to everyone who shared responses to the survey of school-based nurses earlier this month. We heard from over 200 of you about what's been going on in the first month since school closure.
In response to many of the comments you shared, we have prepared the Townhall Event described below, as a way to offer support, information, and personal connections for RNs practicing in Oregon schools.
Facilitators include myself - Corinna Brower (OHA State School Nurse Consultant); Wendy Niskanen (OSNA immediate-past-president); Heather Godsey (incoming OSNA president), Jamie Smith (immediate-past-OHA SSNC, now at MESD) and Sasha Grenier (ODE School Health Specialist).
Please see the details and links below. We would love to have you join us if you are able!
