Welcome to the Kansas School Nurse Organization
School nursing, a specialized practice of nursing, protects and promotes student health, facilitates optimal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders who bridge healthcare and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potential. (NASN, 2017)
Please visit the Resource tab for many Kansas school nurse resources.

The 28th Annual Statewide Summer Conference for Kansas School Nurses
This year's KSN conference will be held July 18-20, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Wichita. The New Nurse program will be July 17-18, 2017. http://webs.wichita.edu/?u=conferences&p=/ksn
Hotel Information: Reserve Your Hotel Room Today! Due to the Paul McCartney concert in Wichita on Wednesday, July 19th during the conference we anticipate there to be a huge demand for hotel rooms in the downtown area. Once the room block is full or expires we anticipate that we will not be able to get reservations at the discounted rate above. You are encouraged to make your reservations as soon as possible either by visiting the Hyatt's website here or by calling them at 1-888-421-1442. If you haven't already made a hotel reservation for the Kansas School Nurse Conference we would encourage you to do so! We have a block of rooms reserved at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, 400 W. Waterman, Wichita, KS 67202. Room rates are $115.00 per night + tax. There is no charge for parking if you are staying at the hotel. Daily commuters will be charged $5.00 per day to park in the parking garage. If your district is planning on hiring new nurses you will want to reserve a hotel room now because there will not be any rooms after the cut off date.
