The National Association of School Nurses (NASN) envisions school communities where students are healthy, safe, and ready to learn. When violent acts, such as school shootings, threaten the safety and well-being of students and school staff, action must be focused on common sense solutions. In recent days, NASN joined the voices of multiple organizations who care about the safety of children and teens. NASN signed onto letters requesting Congress to work in a bipartisan way to enact laws that will keep children safe. ~NASN President, Nina Fekaris
