Nurse's Station

 

Welcome to Jackson Hole High School’s Nurse’s Station!

I am currently in my 20th year of nursing.  I have experience in the areas of oncology, med-surgical medicine, trauma, and pediatrics.  Prior to school nursing here at the high school I was a nurse at St. John’s Medical Center in the Oncology department.  

In 1999 I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from Illinois Wesleyan University.  The day after college graduation I hopped in my Chevy Corsica and moved to Boston. While in Boston I got the privilege to work in some of the best medical centers in the country.  

For many years I was a travel nurse and worked all over the United States.  It was during that time that I fell in love with Jackson. I currently live with my husband and two children.  I love the outdoors and my absolute favorite activity is laughing.

When Should a Student Stay Home From School?

It is very important that we prevent the spread of communicable disease. Before returning to school:
• Students should be fever free for 24 hours without use of fever reducing medications.
• Students should be free of continuous coughing.
• Students should remain at home until 24 hours after the last episode of vomiting or diarrhea.
• Students should remain home for 24 hours after taking the first dose of antibiotic for an infection.

Emergency Medications at School:

Please complete the Rx Med Form if your child's medical condition requires them to carry an Epi-pen, Benadryl, Insulin/Diabetic supplies, or an inhaler with them at all times.  You must have their doctor sign or stamp the form before filing it with the school.  Please bring the medication in the original container – whether it’s a prescription medication or over-the-counter medicine.  This form must be renewed each year.  This form also needs to be completed by parents and doctor and returned to the school nurse, if your student needs to take prescription medication during school hours. 

Medication Permission:

Please complete the Generic Medication Release form if your student has "as needed" medications that they may need during school hours.  Please remember that you or another adult must bring the medication to school.  Students are not allowed to transport medication to and from school or carry medication at school (there is an exception for prescriptions for life threatening conditions).  Please bring the medication, to the school nurse, in the original container – whether it’s a prescription medication or over-the-counter medicine.  Any/all medication taken at school must go through the school nurse.  The medication release form must be renewed each year.
