Hi, I am the school nurse here at Newton-Conover High School. I am a registered nurse with a national certification in school nursing. I have been a nurse for over 25 years. My past work experiences include emergency room & critical care nursing. I have worked & called NCHS my home now for the past 7 years. As a school nurse it is my job to promote good health & wellness. I help identify health problems or risks, provide interventions, and make referrals, to ensure the best outcome for your child. I strive for the prevention of physical, emotional & social problems to enable our children to meet their optimal educational goals. Simply put, I believe a healthy, happy, & well adjusted child can learn better!
Just a reminder that if you haven't got your flu shot yet, now is the perfect time! You can call to schedule an appointment with your doctor or at Catawba County Public Health. There are also many local pharmacies that have walk-in flu shots during pharmacy hours.
