Texas School Nurses are asked to care for students that present with varied health conditions every school day. It may be something as simple as a scratch to something as major as an anaphylactic reaction. This year, the conference theme was “School Nurses Making the Grade: Excellence in School Healthcare." At the conference, presentations were given that brought information to 350 school nurses who attended that will help
them “Make the Grade” and give the best care to the students of Texas Schools and thus help them to be healthier and better able to learn and not only gain knowledge to help  be a better School Nurse, but will also discover other areas for collaboration.
