“Participating in the NEUSHA Leadership Academy has been an invaluable experience that will positively impact my practice. I have gained necessary skills in leadership, and also gained the confidence needed in order to adequately apply those skills on order to advocate for school nurses, students, and families. I have been able to make school nurse leader connections, which will continue to be, an important resource for networking and idea-bouncing.” (2022 Leadership Academy Cohort)

“Each topic was current, relevant to school nursing and applicable to our practice. I am actively working with newcomer (our district’s preferred term) families and the information on dealing with anxiety in real time is information I’ll begin using tomorrow.” (Nov 2023 Conference)

“Being able to connect with nurses around the country and share not only our struggles but our triumphs was truly empowering. Everyone’s willingness to share their ideas and materials was so helpful. You feel that you are in this together. Jenny and Kathy are inspiring leaders and I hope to work with them in the future!” (2023 Leadership Academy cohort)

“My first summer academy conference! All of the speakers were very interesting, engaging and entertaining. I will definitely be back again!“ (Aug 2022 Summer Academy)

“I thought this was the best summer academy yet! The presenters were great and relative to school nursing and the narratives were wonderful. Hearing others talk about their experiences was cathartic.” (Aug 2022 Summer Academy)

“This academy has helped me grow as a leader and also has revealed the things I have been doing right. Growth is recognizing your strengths as well as developing new skills. Really, thank you very much Jenny and Kathy. It has truly been a pleasure!” (2023 Leadership Academy cohort)

“This was an extremely useful professional development course, with information relevant to the population of students I serve in my school and within the district. I will use the information to support students and families, both directly and indirectly. I intend to share the information with colleagues.” (Nov 2023 Conference)
