National School Nurse Day is celebrated on the Wednesday of National Nurses Week. This year it will be celebrated on May 12. On this prosperous occasion, we will honor all the nurses in the school who care for your children every day. The nurses in the school promote your children’s education by your children’s health. The school nurses would go first when any of the children are not well, otherwise if they injured they will provide better care for every student. Then the Nurse in the school will provide a wealth of information for education support as well.
“I think one’s feelings waste themselves in words; they ought all to be distilled into actions which bring results.”- Florence Nightingale
