MJM Aug 2014From the SNOM President

  • SNOM strives to provide communication of issues vital to school nurses, to enhance their learning and to support each other by sharing experience. In our fast paced lives it is not an easy task to keep up with constant communication and respond when needed. It is very important however. This was especially evident to me today as we received word that a manufacturer has recalled an emergency medication that we rely on in most of our offices.

    Please make sure that you are connected to the SNOM Discussion List. It is our main vehicle to relay messages and support each other. Check out your subscription settings at: http://schoolnursenet.nasn.org/MySubscriptions

    The SNOM Board met on Monday, October 26, 2015. Agenda items included: the discussion of our 3 current affiliated research projects, third party billing issues (ICD-10 codes and PCA billing), and a review of a draft of the MN Emergency Guidelines for Schools. See the minutes posted in our Members Only Section for details.

    SNOM congratulates our member, Erika Yoney BSN, LSN, who has accepted the position of State School Health Nurse Consultant and will start 12/9/15. Erika’s experience and expertise in school nursing practice will be of great value to all of us and we look forward to working with her in her new role!
