Nurse

I am a native of Fannin County, and I have been married for 32 years to Charlie Acker from Charlotte, NC.  I have two children who are FCHS graduates and college graduates, and I have one grandchild. I have worked with the school system for 16 years. When I first began working with the school system, there were only two nurses for all five schools, but we now have a school nurse for each school.  I graduated from North Georgia College in Dahlonega, Georgia.  I have worked in several different occupations; prior to becoming a nurse, I worked at Tennessee Chemical Company.   When the plant was closed down in 1986, I realized my dream of becoming a nurse. I already had several years of college with a background in business, and was accepted into the nursing program.  It was a decision I have never regretted.

Upon completion of my R.N. degree, I worked as charge nurse at Ellijay Hospital, then as case manager for a home health agency. I  began my school nurse career in 1999.  I continue to work at Union County Hospital as needed, on Med/Surgical or ICU. 

School nurse is a very rewarding career. I have enjoyed being part of so many children's lives; the students that I began with so many years ago are now graduating and embarking on their own careers, and some have chosen the health field.
