Trish Garrett, RN BScN
School Nurse for Eastern Alamance High School
Hello! And welcome! My name is Trish Garrett and I hold a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from the University of Alberta. I have been a nurse for 17 years. My time in nursing has been spent in some pretty cool specialties. I was a Pediatric Emergency Nurse for 5 year, Labor and Delivery Nurse for 7 years, a Certified Childbirth Educator for 7 years and a School Nurse for 3 years. During my time as a School Nurse, I have cared for children ranging in age from 3 years through 12th grade. I joined the Eastern team in November of 2018. My primary goal is help keep your children healthy and to provide a safe environment for your children to learn in. I provide first response medical care when the needs arises. I also am able to case manage children with chronic medical conditions and train school personal on how to manage care of your child with ongoing medical concerns. I am at Eastern daily.
