Message from the Executive Board:
We wish to welcome you to your new Essex County School Nurses Association website. Our primary objective is to share critical information to make sure that every school nurse has the tools necessary to return to school safely with the support of colleagues and our professional organizations. To accomplish our goals, this website will have a password protected area to share information and strategies, as well as a public component for time-sensitive information. It is critical that we all join and support our professional organizations to promote the sharing of scientific information and interventions. New information will initially appear on the "Home" page, but then will only appear on either the "News" or "Resources" pages.
