Q: How is it like being at Lebanon Trail High School?

Q: What was your work like before coming to Lebanon Trail?

A: Clinics are a lot more work than school nursing. Pap smears, incisions, popping pimples, and injections. Here all you have to do is document everything and send them home.

A: Never give up. Never ever give up. I’m actually going back to school. I was just sitting here and I’m like, this is what I want to do. I applied for other jobs, but those jobs are not for me. But then when I got back into nursing, I realized that this was where I should be!
