Kim Webb, Shenandoah Valley Elementary; Robin Wallin, director of health services; Jennifer Baker, River Bend Elementary 1/22/2020 -- Jennifer Baker, River Bend Elementary, Lynn DeGuire, Claymont Elementary and Kim Webb, Shenandoah Valley Elementary, earned the Nationally Certified School Nurse (NCSN) credential, which validates their specialized knowledge and expertise as a school nurse. Parkway has 20 nationally certified school nurses, the most in Missouri.

The nurses were recognized by the Parkway Board of Education on January 15.

The NCSN credential is granted to registered nurses who meet educational, employment, and other criteria, and who have successfully passed the national examination managed by the National Board for Certification of School Nurses. The NCSN process is accredited by the American Board of Nursing Specialties, whose rigorous standards ensure that the credentialing process of the NBCSN meet or exceed industry standards for certification and that its examination is reflective of the knowledge expected of the proficient school nurse.
