My Experience as NASN School Nurse of the Year
Reilly, Dorothy J.
Journal of School Nursing, v20 n6 p309-310 2004
This article shares the author's experience as the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) School Nurse of the Year. Recognition by one's peers for excellence in the profession is indeed an honor and a humbling experience. She states that it was a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with many NASN friends. Special recognition and awards from Bayer Health Care Corporation and Healthmaster added to this marvelous time. At the awards ceremony, the author enjoyed sharing an experience she had during an Individualized Education Planning conference. She stresses that school nurses really are one of the best bargains in the health care delivery system today. As her year as NASN's School Nurse of the Year draws to a close, the author is deeply indebted to this extraordinary organization.
