Words of Welcome 2022-2023
The Executive Board of the Bergen County School Nurses Association welcomes you back for the new school year! We are looking forward to a less stressful and more positive experience than those of the past three school years. We are hopeful that the worst is behind us and that we will see more normalcy in our school health offices this year. We have been made stronger by our challenges and can bring that resiliency into our practice. We look forward to serving our students and staff. We also look forward to working with our fellow school nurses to strengthen ourselves and our communities. We are healthcare professionals in the public health sector and we are proud of the care and guidance that you provided to your schools. We know that you will continue to be warriors in this new year. We welcome everyone back with in-person general membership meetings this year and would love to see everyone again. Please visit our membership page to join the Association and visit the events page to register for upcoming meetings. Let's support each other, stay safe and be well. - Donna Pleus, MSN, RN, NCSN - President BCSNA
BCSNA 2022-2023 Calendar of Events
The Bergen County School Nurses Association offers educational opportunities on current issues in school nursing. Professional development hours are available for each of these events. The BCSNA typically hosts two fall and two spring meeting events each year. At the present time, we plan on offering a hybrid of events with our first meeting in October being an in-person meeting and our November meeting taking place on line. Of course, health safety will dictate further plans, but it is our hope that we will be "back to normal" by the spring. We are very fortunate that Hackensack Meridian will continue to conduct school nurse webinars for the foreseeable future. Please click on the "Events" tab to register for our upcoming meeting(s).
To help keep you abreast of the changes that are occurring in school nursing, please join BCSNA for the 2022/2023 school year. To become a member, complete the membership application form.
