About Mrs. Ana

Welcome!!

My name is Ana Castle, RN, and I am your School Nurse at Tom Williams Elementary School and ATech High School. I started my nursing career as a Licensed Vocational Nurse working in Pediatric Home Care for eleven years while I continued my learning at California State University of Long Beach in Molecular Biology, earning my Bachelors of Science in that field. I then went back and bridged into my Registered Nursing Associates Degree at College of Southern Nevada in 2008. Soon after I completed my Bachelors in Nursing at Grand Canyon University. As a Registered Nurse (RN) I worked in the Medical/Surgical floor, and Maternal/Child floor before joining the Clark County School District as a School Nurse.

This is my third year working as a School Nurse and I am excited to be back with the best students, families, and staff! I am here to answer your questions, concerns, and help your children to stay healthy and be successful in school.

It is my purpose to provide you with the necessary information regarding back to school immunization, medication use at school, screenings, and any health issues that may impact your ability to attend school, stay healthy, and be in compliance with the State and County requirements.

I look forward to a fun, safe, and healthy school year!!
