~~ Keeping New Hampshire Students Healthy
New Hampshire is participating in the Step Up and Be Counted project sponsored by the National Association of School Nurses. Our State Data Champion Coordinator is NHSNA board member, Past President Nancy Wells RN, MS, NSCN. Working with her will be UNH senior nursing students as part of their Public Health Project course. Students will be contacting school nurses to collect data from all schools in New Hampshire. A message from the students to you:
"We will be reaching out to all public, private, charter, and parochial schools in the state of NH from grades k-12 beginning on October 1st. We are collecting data to determine the population of the school, the number of nurses in each school, whether the nurses are full time or part time, and the number of students in each school that has one of the following chronic conditions; asthma, diabetes type I, diabetes type II, anaphylaxis, or epilepsy. We look forward to collaborating with you as we work towards our goal or surveying every school in New Hampshire"
