The NH School Nurse Listserve is an e-mail forum for sharing information and questions regarding school health issues. Members use the Listserve to discuss a common interest, seek or post information, and share ideas and resources. All New Hampshire school health personnel working directly in our New Hampshire schools are encouraged to join. This service is provided free of charge. Maria Butler, RN, BSN, Public Health Nurse Coordinator, Special Medical Services, NH DHHS, moderates the Listserve.The Listserve Confidentiality Policy, List Netiquette, and Frequently Asked Questions topics will give you more information about how to post messages.
If you are a school nurse, ARPN, LPN, LNA, physician, or another type of school health services personnel in New Hampshire and wish to join, please simply e-mail Maria Butler at Maria.W.Butler@dhhs.state.nh.us. Be sure to provide her with your full name, the name of the school or agency where you work, and your position/title. School health professionals from related service organization may also request to join. Posting privileges are normally restricted to school health personnel and New Hampshire Department of Education employees.
If members would like to discuss a sensitive/confidential issue, e.g., describing a situation in your school that may lead a reader to identify a student or staff member involved, please send your question or concern directly to Maria Butler at Maria.W.Butler@dhhs.state.nh.us. She will either post it to the Listserve so that you and your school remain anonymous or will further discuss the matter with you.
