School Health Corporation Helps Defray Cost of Professional Development Activities for its School Nurse Customers

Hanover Park, IL  - School Health Corporation Helps Defray Cost of Professional Development Activities for its School Nurse Customers

With educational budget cuts occurring across many of the nation's school districts, most school nurses must foot their own bill when it comes to professional development activities. With a new plan from School Health Corporation, however, many of these nurses will soon be able to defray the cost of these valuable activities. School Health, the leading supplier of medical products to school nurses, is offering the opportunity for its loyal customers to receive ADVANTAGE points that can be applied to the purchase of National Association of School Nurse (NASN) books, membership dues, and annual meeting registration fees - even up to $1,000 of hotel and airfare expenses for the national conference.

"School nursing has evolved rapidly over the past decade," said Susan Rogers, President, School Health Corporation. "And dedicated school nurses are constantly striving to keep abreast of the numerous advances. With our new ADVANTAGE program, we're able to help our loyal customers to stay current in their chosen profession and continue the tradition of quality care for the students they serve."

Similar to airline frequent flier programs, the ADVANTAGE program rewards loyal customers with points. ADVANTAGE participants receive one point for every dollar of School Health Corporation merchandise ordered. These points can then be applied to NASN professional developmental activities. For example, 1,000 points entitles participants to a $25 credit toward the NASN bookstore. Participation also entitles school nurses to an immediate three-month trial subscription to School Health Alert, an independent, printed newsletter since 1986 it is the United States' most respected publisher of current school health information.

Established in 1977, the National Association of School Nurses is a nonprofit specialty nursing organization with 14,000 members and 51 affiliates.

More than 60,000 schools rely on School Health for their medical supply needs. Founded in 1950, the company has evolved from a specialized distributor of basic supplies to a consultative solutions provider for major health initiatives including vision and hearing screening, emergency response preparedness, infection control, and wellness plans.
