The School and Public Health Nurses Association (SAPHNA), is currently recruiting new members to our Executive Committee. We are seeking applications from both student and qualified School Nurses who have a passion to improve the health and well-being outcomes for children and young people.

Your role will require a time commitment of approximately one day over the period of a month, regular tele-conferences, attendance at 4 Executive Committee meetings each year and the SAPHNA annual conference. As a member of the Executive Committee, you will play a key role in helping to develop and provide regional links with School and Public Health organisations and professionals, collate and contribute to policy and practice developments, contribute content to our Journal, encourage new membership and, most importantly, drive forward the agenda for the School Nursing workforce.

In return you will form part of a highly influential and respected professional association; the only one totally dedicated to School Nursing. You will play a key role in representing the voice of School and Public Health Nurses across the UK and supporting the professional development of our members.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the SAPHNA Executive Committee, please send an A4 application to sharon@saphna-professionals.org by 17th February 2014. Your application should give a pen picture of your experience, knowledge, skills and examples of involvement in innovation which demonstrates improved practice and outcomes. Outline any specific areas of expertise; e.g. sexual health, emotional health etc. and finally, why you feel you would be able to play a key part in our crucial work.
