It’s Daylight savings this weekend, hard to believe! Are you prepared to spring ahead? The calendar and school year are springing along at a rapid pace. When I look outside signs of spring are clouded by the piles of snow, ice and big pot holes. I think I need to change my view of things!
One great thing to be reminded of is the upcoming SNOM and NASN elections. NASN Elections will be available March 15th. Active members can log on at: Make Your Vote Count - 2014 NASN Elections Coming Your Way. This year’s NASN elections include the NASN Vice President and a Nominating Committee Member. Cindy Hiltz, our SNOM NASN Director is running for NASN Vice President.
For SNOM elections, active members will receive a link to a survey to vote via email. The SNOM election ballot will include the President, Vice President and Secretary.
Look at the SNOM webpage http://www.minnesotaschoolnurses.org/ for information regarding nominations for the School of the Year and School Nurse Administer of the Year. Who can you nominate? This is a great way to recognize yourself and / or a peer! We all do great work, so take the time to nominate a LSN.
All members are welcome at our next meeting on Monday, April 21 at 5pm in Hopkins.
Each year, SNOM celebrates the talents of school nurses and other professionals who contribute to school health. Individuals and groups who have made outstanding, timely and enduring contributions to school nursing are eligible for nomination. Recognition is given for excellence in school nursing, administration of school health services or participation in projects supporting the health and education of school children in the State of Minnesota and nationally.
