Welcome to the School Nurse's Website

I am Leslie Echeverria, school nurse for Bryan Middle School. I received my ADN from the Metro Community College nursing program in 2015 and my BSN from UNMC college of nursing in 2017. Although I have been a nurse for a few years, this is my 1st year at Bryan High School.  Before being a school nurse, I worked at One World Community Health Centers and Hillcrest Health Services. I have nursing experience in family practice, women’s health, and pediatrics.


I was encouraged to become a nurse at the age of 11 after one of my great aunts died of colon cancer. My mission as a school nurse is to be proactive in issues that affect the health of children to promote optimal learning in the educational setting. 

 

If you have any questions about your student’s health can you can call me at 531-299-2301.  Hablo español.
