Message from our President:
Welcome back my fellow School Nurses!!
As I begin this 2019-2020 school year, I reflect back over the past few months and how so many things have impacted our region. Floods, lightning storms, tornados and a mass shooting have affected Southwest Ohio. These events will add additional challenges to the start of our school season.
I am sure that many of you, like me, have witnessed the blessing of how our neighborhoods have come together to help others in their times of need. I truly like to think of SWOSNA as a community. My desire for SWOSNA is that we are able and willing to provide support and encouragement for one another. Working together lightens the load that each of us individually face.
Embarking on by my 24th year in school nursing, I have found that many of us experience the same challenges, despite the number of years we have been involved in the profession. I look forward to our 3 general meetings, and I challenge each of you to mix it up and mingle at these gatherings. Come together and share your stories so that we may all grow and learn from one another. Let’s start this school year feeling strong and supported by our SWOSNA community!!!
Let’s have a great school year!!
