Strategic Goals

At the Virginia Association of School Nurses, we’re working hard year after year on our Strategic Goals. This page allows you to learn more about our vision for the future of our community. Our plan reflects our strengths, in addition to the principles of the school nursing profession. Through the annual VASN Fall Conference, board meetings, and educational workshops, we aim to advance the quality of health services for students in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

We hope you join us on this exciting journey and help us reach our goals!

Our Strategic Goals are built on three focus areas: Education, Advocacy, and Membership.

  • Promote and provide professional development opportunities to support school nursing standards and scope of practice using formal and informal learning opportunities.
  • Empower school nurses to advocate for policies and legislation impacting student health and wellness.
  • Increase and sustain membership over the next three years.
