APS Nurse Receives Special Award by Colorado Association of School Nurses

For the past eight years, Linda Lee Wood has worked as a school nurse at APS Meadowood Childhood Development Center, meeting diverse health needs for preschoolers and their families. 

Wood, one of four school nurses in the state to be nominated for the 2018 Colorado School Nurse of the Year award, was presented with a special award created just for her: the 2018 Outstanding School Nurse for Students in a Specialty Area. Wood was recognized by the Colorado Association of School Nurses for going above and beyond her assigned duties as a preschool nurse.

Wood decided to pursue school nursing following 34 years in neonatal intensive care.

“I wanted to help families who were experiencing a whole new world once their child left the neonatal intensive care unit and were now entering the school system,” says Wood. “I love working with all children and making a difference in my community.”

Congratulations, Linda, on this well-deserved accomplishment!
