Bio

Megan is the current Delaware Director for the National Association of School Nursing.  She has been a school nurse for 23 years and has been an RN since 1981.  Megan has worked in critical care, emergency department, post anesthesia and school nursing. When she became a school nurse she started working in a large public high school and stayed for 17 years (& loved it) and then transitioned to a special needs school 3 years ago.  Megan loves school nursing and considers it a true honor to positively affect the lives of the children and community in which she works (and lives!).  
Megan believes that true leadership can only be achieved if you are an example to the people that you serve.  She is a 2014 graduate of the Johnson & Johnson School Health Leadership Fellowship at Rutgers University.  She believes that you have to be a role model and be willing to do the work yourself.  School nurses need to have a voice and tell the public what their expertise is and how they can bridge the gap between health and learning.  She strongly believes that we need to be advocates and not be afraid to speak up for what is right for our children and communities.  We are the health experts in our schools and districts and we need to be the voice that supports health.
Megan is on the Board of Directors for NASN, DSNA and the ARC of Delaware.  She volunteers for the ARC inspecting group homes and other activities.  She also volunteers for Special Olympics, Days of Summer Down's Syndrome Camp, Operation Heartbeat, DSNA, and Families Speaking Up- an advocacy group for people with special needs. Megan was also the NASN Endowment Fundraising Committee Chair and believes that we need to dedicate funds for research and evidence based practice and scholarship to advance school nursing.
