Hear from Our Nurses

I really enjoyed my time at the [school name redacted]. The office staff and teaching staff are all hoping I will return. In the short month I was at the school, I feel I made some great improvements to the school clinic. I have been serving children in this county for the last 14 years and would love to go back as a nurse with HCES to continue to serve these kids that I love so much. Thank you for this opportunity.

RN, Jackson County
