I've never been so pumped for a conference as I am for this one! First time in a 20+year career that I've seen a nursing conference host a 5k.
It's about time nursing world! Kudos to National Association of School Nursing for jump starting the national initiative of RN Health by walking the talk. Or running!
There are 2.8 million nurses in the United States- the nations largest group of health care professionals. We are striving to model self care and disease prevention by being physically active. It is powerful to watch groups of people show they mean it by putting words into action. In the case of school nurses, we are saying "Our health matters" "Your Health Matters" and so "Let's Move!".
