On the occasion of School Nurses Day, May 9, as Proclaimed by Governor Rick Perry, The Texas School Nurses Organization wishes to congratulate the professional registered nurses providing nursing care to the school children of the Karnes County area. These dedicated nurses provide comprehensive nursing care for ill, injured, and medically fragile children in public and private schools statewide, thereby assisting children to fully access their educational program.
With the increased presence of chronically ill students in the school setting requiring nursing care, it is ever more important to have professional registered nurses serving Karnes County area students. Professional registered nurses provide a vital link between schools and family health concerns.
We congratulate those schools who support professional registered nursing services for their students and ask the Karnes County community to join us in recognizing the professional registered nurse’s contribution to the education of their children.
