Nurses On the MOVE …
In support of our School Nurses during this critical public health crisis and in accordance with guidance and advisories on large group gatherings at this time, the Spring SNOW Conference scheduled for March 20-21 has been postponed. Our decision to reschedule was not an easy one, and was based heavily on the needs of our membership and the value that is placed on School Nurses to be in their districts at this time. We appreciate and support all that you do for your students, staff, and communities.
The rescheduled date for the School Nurses on the MOVE conference is MAY 29-30. Your registration and room reservations will automatically be adjusted, you do not need to contact the hotel to do so. If you are unable to attend the new date- please let us know. Hotel Cancellations will continue to fall under the policy of GWL, but they are happy to help you reschedule.
We are diligently working with our presenters in order to maintain the published content, but there will be some changes to the line up due to conflicts because of the reschedule. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding at this time and look forward to seeing you in May. Registration for the May dates are open!
