Lana Watts, a Pascagoula High School nurse, recently earned her National Board School Nurse Certification and was celebrated with a surprise reception.
As administrators and staff gathered in the conference room, PHS Anthony Herbert called Nurse Watts to come to the conference room to “check his blood pressure”. When she opened the door, she was surprised to find her colleagues with a cake that read, “Congrats Nurse Watts!”.
Nurse Watts has been a nurse with the high school for 3 years.
“I really just enjoy helping the kids. I love being a nurse, especially within the schools,” says Watts.
With this certification, she is now specialized to work within schools and become an expert in school nursing.
Nurse Watts is one of only 40 National Board Certified School Nurses in the state of Mississippi and the second one in the Pascagoula-Gautier School District.
“We just wanted to show how proud we are of her and how much we appreciate her”, says Herbert.
