School Nurse Info
About Mrs. Smith BSN, RN:
Professional life: I graduated from Weber State University with my RN degree in 2020. Then I received my Bachelor's Degree in Nursing from Weber State University in 2021. I previously have worked in Pediatric HomeCare, and in the hospital setting on the Women and Newborn Unit. I am excited for this new step in school nursing. I am a member of the National School Nurse Association.
Personal life: My husband, 2 year old son and myself love camping. We do it as much as possible. We have 2 labrador retrievers who keep us busy. I also love reading.
My Role as the School Nurse:
My goal is to keep our students healthy, safe, and ready to learn. I work closely with our school counselor, mental health specialist, the principal, and teachers to identify any health concerns, and provide resources to assist parents to access health care when needed.
