Mrs. Ann Blankenship

Since 1986, I have been licensed as a registered nurse. Although I have worked in several clinical areas, Labor and Delivery is my home. People often ask me why I have chosen to spend time teaching young people. Teaching is an integral part of health care. We educate patients and families. We share our knowledge with the nurses just coming out of their educational program. We teach each other. So, educating is not new to me. Now, teaching students in high school; that is a different story! In my own way, I hope that I am making a difference by helping to lay the foundation for those who may choose a career in health care or those who may be in a position to help a loved one in the future.
