• Notes from Nurse Chris


    Welcome to Nurse Chris' page. I am so happy to be your child's school nurse teacher. I'd like to tell you a little about myself. After I graduated from the University at Albany in New York I joined the United States Navy and was stationed at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda Maryland and then here, at the Newport Naval Hospital. When it was time to return to civilian life the decision was made to stay here to raise our family. I worked many years in the Emergency Department at Newport Hospital and began substituting as a school nurse teacher. My school nurse teacher career fully began in East Providence as a middle school health teacher for one year and then working at an elementary school for 14 years. During that time I also completed my master's degree in school counseling which is so helpful when caring for children.
