2015 Texas School Nurse Day Proclamation

Your Texas School Nurses Organization celebrates and acknowledges the many accomplishments of School Nurses in Texas, their efforts in meeting the needs of today’s students by improving the delivery of health care in private and public schools, and their vital contributions to our local communities by helping all students remain healthy, ready to learn, in our schools. Governor Greg Abbott has therefore proclaimed Wednesday, May 6, 2015, as “School Nurse Day” in Texas, and commends its observance to all citizens.
