Introducing....Nurse Bonnie Pepper   VIDEO 

I

My name is Bonnie Pepper and I am the Registered Nurse at Hannah Marie Brown Elementary School. I received my Bachelors of Science in Nursing as a second degree in 2010 from Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA. My first degree was in Business Administration and I worked in the world of finance before I "pulled the rug out from under myself" to pursue a career in the helping professions. I started my nursing career at Penn State Hershey Medical Center, where I worked in the pediatric and adult emergency department and Level I trauma center. I moved to the Las Vegas area in 2012 and continued my work as an emergency department nurse at Sunrise Hospital and Southern Hills Hospital. I came on board with CCSD as a school nurse in 2015. I enjoy working with my students, and have a passion for helping to guide them towards a healthy lifestyle. peppeb@nv.ccsd.net

How we can help...

  • Maintain health records of all students to accommodate a safe and supportive learning environment for each child;   

  • provide TLC for acute illnesses or injuries at school; 

  • administer medications for students requiring them at school; 

  • health education in such topics as hygiene, **puberty, dental care, nutrition, and more; 

  • perform health procedures, treatments, and assessments for those students requiring them in order to attend school; 

  • review student immunizations, and enforce immunization requirements according to guidelines in the state of Nevada;

  • identify and exclude students with possible contagious conditions to maintain a healthy learning environment;  

Kids in Preschool
  • mandated *vision and hearing screenings for K & 4th grade students;

  • issue referrals and provide assistance in obtaining follow-up care for acute or chronic conditions, and issues identified in screenings or assessments; 

  • and anything that can help support a healthy child, because we believe that healthy children learn better and achieve more!  

* Students may have vision or hearing screening performed, based on state mandates (NRS 392.420). Please notify the school nurse in writing if you do not want your child to participate in any of these screenings. This screening exemption will remain active unless revoked in writing.

 

** 5th grade students receive an introductory lesson from their teacher in conjunction with the School Nurse on growth and development, usually in the spring. In compliance with Nevada law, (NRS.389.036), a parent or guardian will be required to submit a permission slip, and will have the opportunity to review the learning materials in advance.
