Welcome to another fantastic school year! As the school nurse at Lombardy, my goal is to advance academic success for our students by protecting and promoting student health and facilitating optimal development. According to the National Association of School Nurses (2017), "School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders who bridge health care and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their potential." I look forward to working closely with the Lombardy families, staff members and students to promote a healthy environment in which all the children can thrive academically, physically, and emotionally.
