A good nurse shares comfort, compassion & caring without a prescription – T. Guillemets
Our Mission: Elevate the quality of school nursing and provide leadership for the delivery of quality health programs for all Southwestern Ohio school children.
Welcome to the Southwest Ohio School Nurse Association (SWOSNA) Website!
This year we celebrate the 5oth anniversary of the
National Association of School Nurses!
SWOSNA now has its largest ever membership, with representation from seventeen southwestern Ohio counties: Adams, Auglaize, Brown, Butler, Clark, Clermont, Clinton, Darke, Greene, Hamilton, Highland, Mercer, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, Shelby, and Warren.
The Southwest Ohio School Nurses Association provides unparalleled resources to its members
through valuable tools and networking opportunities that promote growth in the practice of
school nursing. We welcome all current and new members to visit our website, a place to
network with SWOSNA leadership, review by-laws, and obtain information on meetings. Annual
general meetings in the spring and fall offer continuing education hours (1.5 each!) designed to
promote and advance the quality of health services and education in your school community.
Our region hosted the Ohio Association of School Nurses (OASN) conference in 2018 and will
host again in 2019 at the University of Dayton Marriott.
SWOSNA offers a National School Nurse Certification scholarship in addition to valuable local,
state, and national resources.
Your membership is vital to the continued success of SWOSNA. As 2018-2019 President, I
encourage you to attend general meetings, network with other school nurses, and
consider becoming an active participant on the SWOSNA board or on a committee. This is your
professional organization. Feel free to contact me or any other board or committee member with
your questions, concerns, or suggestions. Have a great school year!
Susan DiSabatino RN, BSN, LSN, NCSN
2018-2019 President, SWOSNA
