Kearney, Mo., April 9, 2024: Kearney School District is proud to announce that three of our esteemed nurses, Candice Walker from Kearney Middle School, Jaci Mick from Southview Elementary and Andrea Detrick of Kearney Junior High have recently passed the rigorous National Board Certification School Nurse Exam.

“This accomplishment not only reflects the dedication and expertise of these individuals but also underscores the commitment of Kearney School District to provide the highest standard of healthcare and support to our students,” District Nurse Karen Hughes said. “We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Candice, Jaci and Andrea on this outstanding accomplishment. Their commitment to continuous learning and professional growth exemplifies the spirit of excellence that defines Kearney School District.”

National board certification is a voluntary credential that signifies the attainment of the highest standards of knowledge, skills, and competencies in the field of school nursing. It requires a comprehensive assessment of the nurse’s ability to effectively address the diverse health needs of students, collaborate with other healthcare professionals, and implement evidence-based practices to promote wellness and academic success.

By successfully completing this exam, Nurse Walker, Nurse Mick and Nurse Detrick have demonstrated their unwavering commitment to excellence and their dedication to the well-being of our students. Their achievement not only enhances the quality of healthcare services within our district but also serves as an inspiration to their colleagues and the entire Kearney School District community.
