Three stacked blocks, one with an EKG symbol, one with a medical cross, and one with a heart.Join us for the 39th North Carolina School Nurse Conference, December 12-13, 2024 at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro, N.C.

This year’s theme is School Nursing: Building Blocks of Knowledge.

This conference, with over 600 annual participants, offers extensive opportunities for professional development to advance the practice of school nurses. Participants can learn from national, state and local experts, discover cutting-edge resources, and network with professionals from a variety of backgrounds.
