Our Mission:  Elevate the quality of school nursing and provide leadership for the delivery of quality health programs for all Southwestern Ohio school children.

Thank you for visiting the SWOSNA website, the go-to resource provided by YOUR regional chapter of Ohio School Nurses.  If you are already a member, you no doubt have a sense of pride in belonging to this valuable and growing chapter.  If you are not a member, we welcome you too!  The Southwestern Ohio School Nurses Association provides unparalleled resources by providing its membership access to valuable tools that promote growth in school nurse practice.

On our website, you will find information on  three general meetings SWOSNA hosts each year that offer free nursing continuing education contact hours and other opportunities designed to promote and advance the quality of school health services and health education in your school community.  In addition, you will find details about scholarship opportunities including a National School Nurse Certification scholarship and other local, state and national resources.

Your membership is vital to the continued success and future of SWOSNA.  As president and fellow member since 1998, I encourage you to attend the general meetings, network with other school nurses and consider actively participating as a SWOSNA board or committee member.  This is YOUR professional organization, and you have uniquely valuable knowledge and experience to offer.  Feel free to contact me or any other board or committee member with your questions, concerns and suggestions.

Warmest regards,


Dawn Abbott MEd, BSN, RN, LSN, NCSN
2016-2017 President, SWOSNA
