Leadership Scholarship Can Help a School Nurse Go to the Annual NASN Conference!

By Wendy Niskanen posted 02-24-2020 16:45

Two years ago, NASN requested that a "millennial" nurse from each state affiliate attend the Leadership Academy, a pre-conference session at the NASN Annual Conference in Baltimore. This was an effort to develop younger leadership throughout the organization nationally. In Oregon, we recognized that developing leadership capacity is essential to the strengthening of school nursing as a whole, so we developed the Leadership Scholarship which provides funds to help a school nurse 40 years of age or younger to attend NASN Annual Conference.

This year, the amount of funding available is $1000, and the NASN National Conference is being held in Las Vegas from June 29th through July 3rd.
