School nurse receives National Board Certification

By: Cassidy Tolley

  For the past 11 years, Kristen Stover has been a nurse at Ripley High School.  She has put in time and effort to care for many students here at our school, and we are grateful for her work.  Now, we are even more proud of our nurse as she has passed and received the National Board Certification for School Nurses (NBCSN).
  Professional certification provides an ongoing and valuable qualification for school nurses and educators.  However, National Boards go one step farther.  The certificate represents a national standard of excellence for school nurses across the country.  For Stover, it is a credential that showcases her time and dedication to school nursing.
  When asked why she wanted to acquire her certification, Stover said “I wanted to see how far I could push myself professionally.”
  To receive your NBCSN, you must first be a school nurse in your county for a minimum of three to five years.  You must also have a bachelor's degree and have a registered nurse license.  The exam itself is an extensive test composed of 250 multiple choice questions.
  Stover prepared for the exam by studying three days a week during this past summer.  She studied with friend and fellow school nurse Cassandra Judge, who works at both Cottageville and Evans schools.  Judge also received her National Board Certification.
  “We would study in the mornings,” said Stover. “The exam was four hours long, so we had to put in a lot of time.”
  Receiving the NBCSN is the highest honor for a school nurse.  Stover said that she would also like to thank her family and friends for supporting her through the exam.  All of us at Ripley High are extremely proud of Stover and would like to congratulate our nurse for all of her hard work.
