My name is Eileen Pricken and I am the Haskell School nurse. For those of you that don’t know me, I understand that speaking to a stranger, especially about medical concerns, can feel very awkward. So, let me tell you a little about myself so I will no longer be a stranger. I am a mom of 4 children, 2 girls and 2 boys that all went to Haskell School. I have been a Girl Scout Leader, a Cub Scout Leader, a PTA member, and a class mom more times than I can remember. I am also a School Certified Registered nurse with both school and hospital experience.
Throughout my career, I have worked with students ranging in age from kindergarten thru high school, those with diverse multicultural needs, and those with special needs due to disabilities or chronic health conditions. I always strive to provide support, guidance, and reassurance to the students letting them know that they have all they need within themselves to be healthy, happy and successful. I understand how stressful school/life can be. Please know that my door is always open for them and for you. I firmly believe that communication between home and school truly benefits the child. I try to make the nurses office a place of comfort and I try to make every student feel that they are important. Thank you for trusting me to care for your child while they are at school.
