    The Role of the School Nurse and the Military Family

  • Provide Input for a School Nurse Leadership Program

    Just a friendly reminder that the School Nurse Leadership Program Needs Assessment closes this Friday, Dec 1st. There is still time to participate!
     

    The Virginia Department of Education has asked George Mason, in conjunction with the Center for School Health Innovation and Quality to develop a sustainable, national leadership program for school nurse leaders and administrators.

    We are defining school nurse leader broadly to include nurses who provide leadership in their district or state in any capacity or who hope to in the future. This includes nurses who provide partial or total administrative responsibilities in a district, lead nurses in districts, board members of state school nurse affiliates, as well as state or regional school nurse consultants.

    To be sure the program meets school nursing leaders’ needs we are conducting a succinct survey and will follow up with interviews/focus groups.

    Please share your perspective on the content, skills and competencies school nurse leaders and administrators need. Your responses are anonymous and you can stop or skip questions at any time.

    Your views will be used to shape the content and activities of the school nurse leadership program.

    We estimate the survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete and please complete the survey by Friday, Dec 1st. Click here to access the survey.

    Please share this survey with fellow school nurse leaders. The more input the better!

    To show our appreciation for your valuable input and time, several gift cards will be drawn for survey participants. (There will be a separate link at the end of the survey, if you would like to be included in the drawing).

     
    Thank you,

  • Summer position available

    Camp Skylemar is looking for a summer camp nurse.

    Holly Nilsen, a teacher in Florida.  Likes to escape the summer heat and work at a really awesome summer camp in Maine.  They are looking for a nurse, and she offered to give them a hand. 

    Holly has been working there for 9 years. Her two sons joined her and their time was character building, filled with fun and life-changing events.  The staff is made up of the greatest people you'd find anywhere, and that's why she offered to help with filling the RN/LPN position.

    Maine is beautiful, the people are awesome, the salary is solid, there's scholarships for those on staff with kids, and we have a blast every day.  

    I would really appreciate any help you'd give in sharing this job opening with school nurses who might be interested in working at Camp Skylemar.   You can reach out to Holly personally holly.nilsen@palmbeachschools.org, or directly to the camp at info@skylemar.com.
