About Our Nurse

School Nurse: Ms. M. Polizzi RN CSN MSN

Education: Helene Fuld School Of Nursing RN, Diploma, La Salle University MSN, Stockton State College BSN- MSN , Rowen College CSN

Years of Experience: Have worked continuously in ICU, Trauma and Emergency room for the last 32 years. Worked intermittently for the previous 15 years as a school nurse

I have been a registered nurse since 1982. I began my career as a staff nurse in the critical care/trauma unit at Atlanticare Hospital in Atlantic City , New Jersey where I remained for the first 20 years of my career. I gradually transitioned into the Emergency Room where I have remained until now. During my career in the hospital, I chose to pursue my School Nurse Certification. I began working as a substitute school nurse and discovered that I enjoyed it so much I decided to take a school nurse position in a local high school for which I remained for 8 years until transferring into the elementary division.

I have found that working with school age children in a more community health setting has been very rewarding. My role as a school nurse has been to facilitate the health and well-being of all the students. My goal as a school nurse for Jefferson Elementary School will entail working together with the families and the school staff to assure your children's health and safety needs are met.
