INFORMATIONAL LETTER NO: 87
TO: Superintendents, Principals, and School Nurses
FROM: Susan A. Gendron, Commissioner
DATE: March 21, 2007
SUBJECT: Nominations for 2007-2008 School Nurse of the Year
The Maine Department of Education encourages you to consider your school nurse for nomination for the Maine’s School Nurse of the Year 2007-2008. The Maine Association of School Nurses (MASN) conducts this award annually. Marla Blake of MSAD #75 was the recipient of this tribute last year. The School Nurse of the Year not only honors one individual, but it also recognizes the many outstanding school nurses who serve Maine schools. It is a way to celebrate the dedication and professionalism of school nurses.
The School Nurse of the Year should be committed to the health and safety of all students. For nomination, the candidate must:
The School Nurse of the Year will be expected to participate in any publicity event planned to celebrate this honor. As peers will view the chosen candidate as a model school nurse, the successful candidate may receive requests for consultation and advice. Also, the chosen application will be submitted as Maine’s candidate for National School Nurse of the Year through the National School Nurse Association. All nominees and the award recipient will be honored at the MASN Fall Conference and again at the Blaine House Tea on School Nurse Day in May. The Maine Association of School Nurses will provide the nurse who is selected an award of $500 to be used for educational purposes (either at school or for the school nurse’s educational needs).
Nomination packets may be obtained by contacting Stephanie Pruzansky, School Nurse of the Year Coordinator, either by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone, 737-4748. Nominations must be received by June 1, 2007.
