Hello! My name is Sinfo Ruiz and it is my privilege to be serving your family as the Rogers Elementary school nurse!
I have been working in nursing for over a decade now. I have spent time in hospital settings as an Adult care ICU Nurse, in clinical settings as a Pediatric care diabetes nurse and educator, and now as a school nurse here at Rogers. Being a school nurse has been my favorite because it is not just a job, but rather a calling and an opportunity to positively impact the health of our children and on some days even their outlook on life.
I take great pride in caring for your child during an illness or in helping mend bumps, scratches or bruises while at school. I see this as a means for me to help our Rogers community stay healthy and further prevent illnesses and injuries. It is part of my role to help you, as well as our team of educators, assist your child to succeed in their educational growth by maintaining a healthy school environment.
Thank you for entrusting your children in my care during their school day!
Sinfo Ruiz, RN CDE
