School nurses are the essential bridge between the healthcare and education systems, serving as frontline healthcare providers. They act as public health sentinels, not only for schools but also for their communities. For under-resourced communities, the school nurse may be the only healthcare provider a child sees. School nurses are vital in monitoring infectious diseases, identifying and addressing students' physical and mental health needs, and conducting health screenings and school-located vaccinations and immunization compliance efforts.

Participating in NASN's Virtual Hill Days can help create momentum and support for the NURSE Act, reintroduced on March 14, 2024, by U.S. Senator Jon Tester (MT-D) and already introduced by Representative Dina Titus (NV-D). This legislation aims to help rural and underserved schools hire more school nurses and increase student access to care. This advocacy will recognize the critical role of school nurses and demonstrate that every school should have a school nurse on staff every day. You can show your support by tweeting, emailing, or calling your Member of Congress and Senators using the provided sample messages or your own on June 11, 12, and 13.
