School Nurses

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the school nurses' section of the UFT website. In this section, my goal is to help you find the information you need quickly. Please check these pages regularly for important updates on school nurses.

If you haven’t done so recently, be sure to sign up here on the website with your current email address. It takes just a minute. Only by signing up can you be sure to receive important emails from our chapter and the union. Signing up also gives you the ability to log in the website to see our contract.

In the 2018-19 school year, school nurses will receive Teacher's Choice funding! You can use your $85 in Teacher's Choice dollars to purchase materials and supplies. More information on Teacher's Choice and important dates.

As your chapter leader, I am here for you.

I am available to answer your questions by email at cbennett@uft.org.

Please keep an eye on this website for postings of this year's chapter meeting dates and other events.

I look forward to working with you this school year. Thank you for all your hard work and the dedication you show every day to your students and school.

Sincerely,

Cynthia Bennett
Chapter Leader
