Welcome back MCSNA colleagues,
A new school year is upon us. As we all embark upon the 2023-2024 school year, know you are all well prepared for the profession we love, and look forward to making a difference in your students lives. We took on this career as a passion to care for others. Never doubt your skills. But if there is ever a time of waiver, MCSNA is here for you.
Morris County School Nurse Association (MCSNA) is ready for another year of providing informative programs and other tidbits of information related to our field and county. The hub of our communication is on our association website; http://mcsna.net/ Make yourselves comfortable with this link. You will find so much information at your fingertips.
Our Fall membership dinner is scheduled for Thursday, October 12th. Please mark your calendar and visit our website for registration details as we get closer. Part of what we provide to our members is programming and professional development. We strive to get the latest, updated topics to share. Three programs a year, along with a topic speaker at our Fall and End of Year dinners. Some information is already posted on our website, while further information will be added as the dates grow closer. Be sure to follow instructions with regards to opening/closing dates with registrations, etc.
Being part of MCSNA is very rewarding. You become someone others know as a resource. This year we welcome a few new members to the executive board and as committee chairs. We are always looking for others to help. Co-chairs are acceptable if you feel the urge to be part of a committee but don’t want to jump in the deep end quickly. Reach out to us and we will pair you up to take the ride along with us.
Our website provides much detail regarding programs/dinners, recalls, job opportunities, resources, committee details as well as contact information for our board members and chair people. You are able to reach out to whomever your question pertains to. There is also a historian link that we are so happy with on the revisions done this past year. Take a few minutes to peruse the pages of past and current pictures and documents. I’m sure you will see a few familiar faces.
Membership is an important part to being able to stay connected. We ask that you join MCSNA. The membership link and information is on the website. Once membership enrollment closes, a new email distribution list will be compiled. Those members currently enrolled will be the ones who receive emails from our association on the year’s events and any other updates. Hoping you will consider joining again to make our association a strong foundation for those in the nursing field, past and present.
As school nurses, we look forward to our summers but know that the time moves through quickly. Take the time we get to rest, rejuvenate, spend time with family and friends, as well as prepare for the following 10 months ahead of us. Know that your Morris County colleagues are here for you. I wish you all a smooth start and refreshing year as you move through it together.
