National School Nurse Day

National School Nurse Day! We honor more than 73,000 school nurses in the United States who make a difference in the lives of children every day. 

The theme this year is “The School Nurse: Better Health. Better Learning.™” It speaks of the significant healthcare roles of school nurses in school communities across the country. School nurses lead the way to advance health and support education by ensuring that students are safe, healthy, and ready to learn. 


Since 1972, National School Nurse Day has been set aside to recognize school nurses. 


National School Nurse Day was established to foster a better understanding of the role of school nurses in the educational setting. 


National School Nurse Day is celebrated on the Wednesday within National Nurse Week. Each year National Nurse Week is held from May 6 through May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday.

Let’s celebrate our school nurses today and always!
