DHSS recognized the work of Alaska’s nurses during National Nurses Week, May 6-12. DHSS employs nurses across divisions, sections and programs, and our public health nurses work in 16 communities out of public health centers and in over 280 communities through itinerant services. This year, DHSS also highlighted the work of school nurses on May 8, National School Nurse Day. State School Nurse Consultant Barb Pennington helped the DHSS Public Information Team connect with several school nurses in the Anchorage area for a DHSS social media post and media stories about the important work school nurses do.
