The Mercer County School Nurses Association as it exists today was formed in 1968. In 1969 there were 60 paid members and 10 unpaid members, and a major topic of discussion was whether or not to wear white. Today the association boasts approximately 100 active members. Major activities include awarding scholarships each year to prospective nursing students, providing professional development opportunities for school nurses, and making known the role of the Certified School Nurse.
The mission of the MCSNA is to promote high ethical and professional standards for each Certified School Nurse who functions as an essential and integral member of the school health team.
School Nursing Practice in the Heart of Mercer County”
