With Spring comes new beginnings!
We begin to settle in to a “new normal”, learning to “live with” Covid. As we saw with our outstanding OASN conference at the beginning of the month, we were able to re-engage with our passion for school nursing while celebrating the perseverance that got us to where we are now.
If you were unable to attend, plan ahead for next year, OASN’s 50th anniversary! It promises to be even bigger and better-as we emerge re-energized and ready to take on the future of school nursing! Save the date for April 21-23, 2023. We are fortunate to be able to host this event in the central region!
With that in mind, consider a new beginning in professionalism for yourself. COASN and OASN rely on YOU. This organization is only as strong as it’s participating members. Consider how you may advance your sense of community by working alongside other enthusiastic professional school nurses by taking a role on our COASN board for 2022-2023.
Please contact myself, or another board member, for more information!
In closing, join me in congratulating Julia Redmond and Michele Faehnle (photo inserted below) who were recognized by their local diocese with the Golden Apple Award in Upper Arlington for their outstanding contribution to excellence in education! We are proud of the work you have provided as exemplary school nurses!
*If you, or a colleague, has received a recognition, please let us know so we can all celebrate our profession!*
Wishing the best to you all as we prepare to draw 2021-22 to a close!
COASN President, 2021-22
