During the Annual VASN Fall Conference, VASN recognizes its members for advancing the professional practice of school nursing. All applications for VASN grants and scholarships are due no later than October 5 of each year.
Certification represents a national standard of preparation, knowledge, and practice and is a voluntary process. Four grants of $150.00 each are available to members who have earned their certification credential through the National Board for Certification in School Nursing (NBCSN) in the past year.
Professional Development Grants of up to $100.00 each are available from VASN to members who have participated in a professional development activity for which they are presenting or are being recognized at a NASN National Conference or other nursing venue.
Two scholarships of $150 each are available to VASN members who are furthering their nursing education towards a higher degree.
