Welcome to the Health Center
Jackie Duarte, RN, BSN, MPA, M.Ed.
DVUSD School Nurse of the Year 2013
DVUSD School Nurse of the Year 2005
I am known by all of my students and staff as Nurse Jackie. I have been the School Nurse at Las Brisas Elementary School for over 20 years now. Prior to becoming a School Nurse, I worked in a hospital in orthopedics, trauma, and general surgical floors as well as in England and Italy in positions in the Air Force supporting families. These experiences have prepared me for the comprehensive care for our students and staff while at school. I also have a M.Ed. in counseling that enhances my role as School Nurse. My primary responsibility is to provide a comprehensive health program and provide the fullest possible educational opportunity for each student by minimizing absenteeism and to create a climate of good health and well being.
