WHEN YOU ARE A NURSE YOU KNOW THAT EVERYDAY YOU WILL TOUCH A LIFE OR A LIFE WILL TOUCH YOURS. ANONYMOUS
Meet The Health Office Nurse
As a School Nurse, I use a holistic approach to promote health and well-being. I support healthy lifestyle choices and behaviors in order to minimize absences, which enhances academic success. I provide assistance and care to those with acute and emergent health needs as well as education and management for those students with chronic health conditions.
I foster a welcoming environment in which diversity is embraced and students feel safe and secure. I am a strong advocate for students, encouraging self-empowerment, problem solving, and effective communication. The Health Office is a place where students can voice their concerns, needs, and experiences. My goal is to assist students in reaching their fullest potential, so that they can be active, healthy, and productive individuals in the future.
WELCOME TO THE HEALTH OFFICE!
The Becton Regional High School District employs a full-time registered nurse to primarily serve the health needs of our students. The School nurse works with students, staff and parents for the general improvement of students’ health and to detect deficiencies or disease.
