All Mississippi school nurses are invited to attend a "School Nurse Gathering with NASN Virtual Conference: Transformation - MS School Nurses Emerging with a Renewed Vision of School Health." Dr. Estelle Watts, Assistant Professor at Mississippi College School of Nursing and former Mississippi Department of Education School Nurse Consultant, and past MSNA president, along with other MS school nurses invite you to an exciting opportunity for professional development and networking. MS school nurses will gather July 11-13, 2022, from 9 am to 4 pm daily at Mississippi College in Clinton to learn, network, and re-connect. 

Hot topics on the agenda include care for the student with diabetes, the latest data on asthma, "Mental Health First Aid," MDE's partnership with UMMC in providing telehealth services, a demo for telehealth participants, and "Expected Next Steps in Surviving a Pandemic." The first evening of the gathering is scheduled to be a time to network, catch up, and meet new nurses. The agenda is included below the news post. 

On Tuesday and Wednesday, all MS nurses are invited to a group viewing of the National Association of School Nurses 54th Annual School Nurse Virtual Conference. If CEUs are needed for certification, make sure to pre-register with NASN at VIRTUAL NASN 2022.
