April is Child Abuse Prevention Month with April 10, 2015 designated as Wear Blue Day.  We want to work with the Texas Organization of Baccalaureate and Graduate Nursing Education and have members wear blue on April 10th. Wear blue day  

As the number of Texas children being abused continue to rise it is important that everyone become involved.​


We would like to share with you some sad facts about an epidemic that is affecting the lives of America’s children.  More than three million children are reported as abused or neglected in America every year, with one million of those cases being confirmed.  And, sadly, over 160 children died in Texas alone last year from child abuse or neglect.

While these statistics are horrifying, there is hope.  We know that child abuse and neglect are preventable.  There is no reason for this many children to not enjoy a sense of security in the one place they should expect it most – home.  

By wearing blue on April 10, 2015 you will be making a statement.  With your help, we can stop this violence – and bring hope to America's children.  You can make a difference in the lives of our children.
