• The 2019-20 School year is my first at Mat-Su Career Tech High School.  

    I decided to become a nurse because it is a very practical career (and because my high school counselors pressured students to

    choose a college major).  I have been a school nurse in the MSBSD since 2009 and was a sub prior to that.  School nursing is a

    multifaceted position in the educational setting.  My new role as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) instructor allows me to apply

    my previous experience into the instruction of the most foundational of health care roles: nurse assisting. 

    Typically, individuals need a high school diploma or a GED to enroll in this type of training.  (I spent $1000 on a 6 week CNA course

    when I was 19).  Now, high school students are priveleged to have the opportunity to take this challenging course for high school

    and/or college credit. It is my pleasure to  instruct students in providing the most basic nursing care with dignity and respect for the

    patients they will encounter.
