D51 Nurse Sheri CampbellGrand Junction, CO - Two of our talented District 51 nurses were honored during a virtual recognition ceremony for Nightingale Award Finalists on April 1: Sheri Campbell and Heather Schuman! Both were chosen as finalists from a group of 35-40 nominees.

Ms. Campbell is the winner of the Nightingale Clinical Leadership in Innovation Award for the Western Slope of Colorado. Her information has been submitted to the State Nightingale Award committee, which will announce its awards in the coming months.

Ms. Campbell is a long-time nurse with District 51 and currently works at Redlands Middle School and both Broadway and Wingate elementary schools (including their preschools). She put together a "Mock Drill Team" that has become one of the only programs like it in the nation and was selected as a presentation for the National School Nurse Conference in June, which will either be held live or streamed online

Although schools are used to Fire Drills and Lockdown Drills, we are more likely to experience medical emergencies in our schools.The Mock Drill program helps staff to be better prepared to respond to seizures, anaphylactic or diabetic reactions, or the need to use CPR to save lives and improve the chances of good health outcomes.

Ms. Shuman was named a finalist in the Clinical Leadership in Advocacy category. She is a nurse at Central High School. In addition, she has been the diabetes educator for the Western Slope for several years, shares her knowledge and skills as a trainer for nurses and health assistants, and ensures that our diabetic students have the best care possible to achieve their academic goals.  

We are so proud of these women and the excellence they bring to school nursing!
