    Dear SNANC, I am a PhD student at the University of Texas at Austin (School of Nursing) with a focus on adolescent mental health and school nurses. I am conducting a nationwide online survey of school nurses, for my dissertation study, to provide a better understanding of the current mental health interventions that school nurses provide to their adolescent students (grades 6 through 12), as well as factors that may support or hinder them. Learning about school nurse current practices will help identify opportunities to provide additional support, allow for advocacy to create positive changes in mental health interventions, and can have future policy implications. Can you please share this survey with your school nurses? It should take 20-25 minutes and it will make a positive difference. It will be valuable to learn about the experiences of North Carolina's school nurses. Thank you so much! Each school nurse who completes the survey will also have an opportunity to enter into a drawing to win a $50 gift card (55 available). The data obtained from this survey will be confidential, and no identifying information will be obtained. Your time and input are highly valued, and I greatly appreciate all your help and support. Adolescent mental health is a big issue, and continues to grow, especially during the pandemic. You play a large role, and it is vital to improving mental health outcomes. Survey Link: https://utexas.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_7UNEo6PKULog03I I would love to share the results of my study with you, if you are interested. Please email me with a request (ahoskote@utexas.edu), and I will send you the results after its completion so you can see how your participation made a difference! If you have any questions, please let me know. Thank you for your time.

  • Please Add Your Support for Healthy Students- A Nurse in Every School Every Day

    Please read through this petition and consider signing in support of a NURSE IN EVERY SCHOOL. (Remember to use your personal email address)

    The School Nurse Association of NC is petitioning for your support for SB331/HB 347 Healthy Students-Nurses in Every School.  These bills support the immediate need to place a registered nurse all day, every day into each public school building. 

    School nurses are the only licensed health care provider in a school and manages all school health services and programs. School nurses are the leaders in the school building to bridge health care and education in order to collaborate and create healthy communities across the state.

    To align with the National Association of School Nurse recommendations of a minimum of one registered school nurse per school site every day, it will take the support of our state government.

  • Press Conference for A Bill Promoting a Nurse in Every School
