Clark Elementary Nurse Clinic
The Role of the 21st Century School Nurse
This is the position statement of the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) that describes the role and job of the school nurse in service to their community.
This school year for 2022/2023 will be my FOURTH year working at Clark and my fifth school year as a school nurse! I have been a nurse for 12 years and have prior experience in mother-baby and labor and delivery hospital and outpatient care.
I have elementary-age kids of my own, so I love caring for every student here as my own son or daughter! My goal as a school nurse is to teach students how to care for their health, both physically and mentally, so they can be empowered to make healthy choices, confident and comfortable in their bodies, and able to give their best effort to learning here at school.
My favorite part of being the school nurse at Clark is the amazing community in this school! Every staff member is committed to each other and to doing their best for the students - all while having a ton of fun!
I am looking forward to continuing to care for the students and staff of Clark Elementary School :)
Thank you for having me!
