Resources for school nurses


Shriners Hospitals for Children and the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) are working together to improve the health and safety of all children.

Through educational materials, events and professional training, Shriners Hospitals and NASN want to ensure students have the prevention and safety information they need to reduce the risk of childhood injuries.

Learn more about our educational awareness programs and order free materials to share with your students.


Used correctly, backpacks can be a good way to carry all the books, supplies and personal items needed for a typical school day.

However, backpacks that are too heavy or carried incorrectly can injure muscles or joints and contribute to back pain and other problems.

Order free Backpack Basics for Healthier Kids to share with your students.


Summer will be here before we know it! Children will spend more time at the playground and participating in outdoor activities, which can lead to a higher risk of injuries. The good news is that with information and preparation, many injuries can be prevented.

NASN and Shriners Hospitals for Children are working together to encourage children to stay On Track for a Safe Summer with simple reminders and tips to avoid accidents and injuries.

Prepare your students for an injury-free summer with the On Track for a Safe Summer activity booklet and safety tips.
