Dear Northeast Ohio School Nurse,
It is a pleasure to welcome you to NEOASN, your Northeast chapter of Ohio School Nurses. We are a volunteer organization of school nurses, united in providing safe, quality and evidence based nursing care for children in schools throughout Northeast Ohio. We hope that you feel the sense of pride we share in belonging to our growing chapter. NEOASN is your forum for professional growth, networking and exchange of innovative practice ideas. We aim to be an added resource for you in current developments in school nursing practice. The goals of NEOASN are as follows:
- To operate as a professional and education organization on a non-profit basis
- To promote and advance the quality of school health services and health education throughout Northeast Ohio
Your membership is our priority. NEOASN vision and goals can only be obtained if the Board and their committees are attuned to the needs of membership by actively listening. Our chapter officers are receptive to new ideas on how we can better serve school nurses throughout our region. We need your input through membership. We want to hear what you want as subjects for future educational and networking events, tell us what you liked in NEOASN past and also what you would prefer to see changed.
As your incoming president, I am coming to you with a great deal of enthusiasm and anticipation for our growing chapter in Northeast Ohio! Having served as President elect last school year, I had the wonderful opportunity to begin to get to know the school nurses serving on your Board. We have some amazing school nurses in our region!
We hope you can attend our next meeting to learn more about NEAOSN. Please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any questions or concerns. We look forward to seeing you on October 24.
Michele Wilmoth MSN, RN, LSN, NCSN
President, Northeast Ohio Association of School Nurses
