NASN Joins with PAPSA to Survey NEPA Pupil Services Administrators on School Health (November 4, 2019)

The National Association of School Nurses (NASN), in collaboration with the PA Association of Pupil Services Administrators (PAPSA), is seeking input from pupil services directors from Bradford, Carbon, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike, Schuylkill, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Wayne, and Wyoming counties.

Recognizing the key role that school nurses play in the health and education of children in our communities, the Moses Taylor Foundation recently launched a new initiative to support school health.  As a first step in this initiative, the Foundation is partnering with the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) to conduct a needs assessment of Northeast Pennsylvania to learn about the health of school-age children, and in particular look at the needs of school health. They are seeking input specifically from pupil services directors, those who supervise school nurses, and school nurses so they can better understand each group’s perspectives. To that end, PAPSA, NASN, and the Foundation are asking school personnel from those groups to participate in a short survey related to student health. The survey will take about 15 minutes to complete and needs to be submitted by Nov 15th. Pupil Services Administrators are encouraged to pass the survey link along to colleagues and school nurses as well. To participate, click here.

From a Northeast PA perspective, this a great opportunity to be heard on a national level.
