Meet William Wiley's New School Nurse
Hello, my name is Rebecca and I am proud to be a Richland School District School Nurse. I serve at Marcus Whitman and William Wiley Elementary Schools. They both are amazing schools and I am honored to be their School Nurse!
I have been a nurse for 25 years and began my nursing career at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle working on the orthopedic floor before transferring to the Trauma/Surgical intensive care unit (board certified critical care nurse for 18 years). My previous position with Harborview Medical Center was Assistant Nurse Manager, Education lead. Past positions have been for Rural Metro Ambulance on their Critical Care Transport team for five years, the Emergency Room at Overlake Medical Center for two years, and as Nursing supervisor at Kindred Hospital for two years. I was also involved with HHS and NDMS for 10 years as a Critical Care Nurse with IMSURT.
I received my Associates degree in Nursing from Shoreline Community College and my Bachelor’s in Nursing from Western Governors University. I also have a Bachelors degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences from the University of Washington. My daughter convinced me to go into School nursing in the hopes we could work together.
My family moved to Tri-Cities in the Summer of 2019. I have two grown children and I am a grandmother of two. My daughter is the Life Skills Teacher for Kamiakin High School in Kennewick. My son is attending Otis School of Art and Design in California, majoring in animation.
My mission is to serve as a school nurse in my community and provide the best care to my students and their families. I love working for Richland School District and being involved in keeping children healthy so they can stay in the classroom and learn!
