School Nursing in Rural Nebraska

Sherri’s Story

I have the honor of working with the children and families in our small community every day, which is one of my favorite things about being a school nurse. Each day brings interaction with students regarding vision, hearing or dental screenings, assessing any health care issues they may be experiencing or providing first aid for playground injuries. Sometimes, I am just a person willing to listen to a child who needs someone to talk to. Every day, I represent a profession I am proud to be a part of.

I am fortunate to be a part of a rural community and a rural health care system. Working in a small community, I have been able to establish positive relationships with those who provide health care services in our area. When confronted with community health issues, we work together as a team to provide the best care and guidance to all families we serve. The impact that we, as a team, have on our community is great. 

I love rural health because each member of the rural health team has a vested interest and a common goal: to provide the best health care possible to the members of the community that we serve. because rural Nebraska is my community. I love my community and have a passion for helping it.
