Upcoming Webinar - A Grassroots Toolkit for Gender Affirming Care

In April 2022, SPN shared our intent in providing the membership with tools and resources to mobilize the pediatric nurses’ voice on the state level. SPN believes that protecting, advocating for, and ensuring children’s welfare is a priority to SPN and our membership. Policy initiatives that curtail or limit access to healthcare contradicts a core tenant of the healthcare provider mission. It also directly conflicts with pediatric nurses’ mission to advocate for, and protect, their patients’ rights.

June 2022 President's Letter

Greetings SPN Members!

As I write this this month’s letter, I am deeply troubled by the recent tragic events that impact our profession and our nation. This past month, we saw a nurse convicted for criminally negligent homicide for a medication error that resulted in the death of her patient. Our communities were shattered by mass murders and hate crimes. My hope is that individually and as a profession, we can reflect on these events and move forward with greater clarity and confidence around our practice and with actions to create safer communities and improved mental health for children.
