President's Message


Fall greetings to all our outstanding school nurses in the Central Ohio Region! While we have all been working tirelessly on our biggest mission: keeping our students healthy and in school during this 4th wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s about time for us to get back together-IN PERSON!

Our 2021-2022 board has been planning-to get us all out of our buildings/districts/’silos’-to finally (and safely) be together as a professional group. On Wednesday, November 10, please join us after school for a meet and greet/cash bar to start the evening at 4:30 at Villa Milano (1630 Schrock Rd. Columbus, 43229). Take this opportunity to share insights and stories with your colleagues, meet Kelly Wagner, President, OASN, and become reacquainted with all our professional organizations have to offer!

Our Central Ohio Region is hosting the statewide meeting THIS SPRING, and there are numerous ways to get involved. Learn all that your organization can do for you, and what you can do to give back and keep us strong!

We hope you will then join us for dinner and a CE opportunity you don’t want to miss: TOPIC: Gender Equity and Compassionate Care in the LGBTQ Youth, provided by Kaleidoscope Youth Center.

The registration information will be posted as soon as it becomes available. Deadline to include dinner will be November 2nd.The time is now, Central Region, let's move forward! SEE BELOW
