Message From the President
I know we have all been looking for the light at the end of the tunnel. Over the last two years, each of
us have been physically tired, mentally stressed and frustrated. We have been challenged with one of
the most stressful times in our nursing careers. However, each of you have given one hundred and ten
percent to our profession. As the President of the WVASN, I want to personally thank you for all your
dedication in providing a safe work environment for the students of West Virginia.
Our annual fall conference was well attended and a success. We hope that those who attended were
able to get refreshed and learn while at Canaan Valley Resort. Thanks to all those who made the
conference a success. Your hard work did not go unnoticed.
The legislative session brought many challenges this year. Thanks to Brenda Isaac and Shawn Hedrick
for representing our association at “Nurses Day at the Legislature” and for keeping the members aware
of all the “happenings” at the Capitol. Again, thanks to everyone who was able to make phone calls and
send emails to the House and Senate to voice our concerns over the bills that were presented. We, as an
association, did make a difference.
On April 2, 2022, Saturday, WVASN had a training, “Modern Diabetes Care In School: A School Nurse
Perspective”. A big thank you to Mindy Liller, who has coordinated this event. Our next event will be
the fall conference, November 10-12, 2022 at Stonewall Jackson Resort. Be sure to mark your calendars,
you will not want to miss it.
As we approach the end of the school year, I personally want to wish you a great summer break. Enjoy
your time with your family and friends making memories. Each of you deserve it!
Happy Spring and Summer!!
