About Us

The Bergen County School Nurses Association is here for you!

School Nurses often find themselves practicing solo without the support and insight of their colleagues.

Join the BCSNA - network, listen and learn!

  • Network with colleagues while discussing issues and challenges relevant to your field.
  • Listen and collaborate with peers while enjoying a delicious meal.
  • Learn and earn professional development credit with access to keynote speakers. Recent topics have included: moving on from Covid19, oral health throughout the lifespan, and advances in the management of diabetes type 1.

Through the BCSNA, you can develop leadership skills. We are always looking for interested members to join our executive team! Why wait any longer? Join today!
