|NJSSNA is Proud To Announce the 2017 Excellence in School Nursing Administration Award Recipient|
Congratulations to Julie Richman MSN,RN,CSN-NJ.!
It is with great pleasure New Jersey State School Nurses Association recognizes and honors Julie Richman, MSN, RN, CSN-NJ.
Nurse Richman works as a Lead Nurse for Roxbury School District in Morris County, NJ. Roxbury School District houses over 3700 students, throughout seven buildings covering grades kindergarten through 12.
Nurse Richman supervises seven certified school nurses throughout her district, in addition to providing school nursing services to her own population of high school students. Nurse Richman’s role encompasses all facets of a district managerial position: Submitting state mandated health reports; coordinating educational programs for district nurses; serving on district and community committees, as well as professional organizations, as a member or in a leadership role; product and supply inventory and maintenance; and district policy and regulation development, to name a few. Nurse Richman succeeds in maintaining current, evidenced-based school nursing practice in her district by formulating her district policies and school nursing practice protocols on current research.
Nurse Richman initiated her district’s Opioid Overdose Response Plan policy, collaborating with key stakeholders to ensure the plan’s success. This policy has been in place even without prompting by NJ law. It is nurse Richman’s foresight and data collection mindset which elevates her managerial prowess and success.
Through her efforts collating data for her district’s Nursing Services Plan, she secured two additional full time nurse positions. Nurse Richman works tirelessly on behalf of her nursing staff to support their practice and provide them with adequate resources so they may deliver high quality, efficient school nursing services. Nurse Richman’s nursing staff praise her knowledge, communication skills, collegiality, expertise in managing challenging situations, and open-door policy. The Roxbury School District community thrives, without a doubt, in part due to the dedication and commitment of Nurse Richman.
