Faces of California School Nurses
Name: Beth Enniss
School District: Santa Rosa Academy
Area of Specialty: Primarily Special Education, but I also lend assistance to the general population
Years as a school nurse: 14 years!
Areas worked prior to becoming a school nurse: PICU, pediatric inpatient/outpatient case management, outpatient clinical nurse specialist, school readiness nursing
What you love about school nursing: I love peds. So much variety and energy and just pure fun… I have adored specific ages in the past, but now I just feel like I love them all. It’s such diversity and each age brings its own challenges and unique joys.
How have you impacted the life of a student or family: Oh boy… last week I helped a family get their adolescent son into an eating disorder program. That felt pretty good. Just a few months ago, I got to advocate for one of my students who had medication needs at school. I got to step in and teach the staff about cystic fibrosis (her diagnosis), the enzymes that this young girl has to take every day, and the need to keep her as far from communicable disease as possible.
Hobbies: Three kids and a husband that I love! Travel, reading, sewing, quilting, running
Additional information you would like people to know about you: Friendly school nursing peers make all the difference. I love getting to know my colleagues in other districts.
