Dover School Nurses

A common impression of the school nurse is a sweet lady who waits for kids to have a belly ache or a scraped knee at school. Yes, school nurses administer first aid, but they also do so much more! School nursing services are becoming more complex. Today’s students come to school with a variety of issues (physical, mental, cultural, and economic) — all of which impact their educational experience. The number of children with chronic conditions requiring ongoing care during the school day has increased. Some children often have specialized health needs requiring skilled care, such as tube feedings, catheterization, inhalation therapy, and injectable medication administration.

Statistics show that healthy students learn better. By identifying, evaluating, and addressing health issues, school nurses influence children in their ability to learn. Please feel free to contact me if you have any concerns you would like to discuss.

Hi! I'm Mrs. Patterson, the school nurse. I love my job as a school nurse! It's very rewarding and fun! Each child touches my heart in his/her own special way. I will advocate for them in any way I can, whether it's developing a plan of care or teaching them how to prevent a cold.
Please feel free to email or call me.

Hi! I'm Mrs. Mossor; I am a nurse for Dover City Schools.  I have been a nurse for 14 years and have been working with different age groups of children for 13 of those years.  I love working with children and I am very excited for the opportunity of working with the students and families of Dover Schools.  My goal is to support the health care needs of each student by collaborating efforts between myself, the family and the student.  I will also promote a healthy lifestyle and encourage the students so they can perform their best every day. Please feel free to call or email me with questions or concerns you may have.
