Welcome Boon Patriots!! My name is Amy Hargrove and the students call me Nurse Amy.
I have been a Registered Nurse for 19 years, a Certified Pediatric Nurse for over 10 years, and I am honored to say that I have worked in Pediatrics my entire nursing career. My nursing experiences have ranged from Pediatric Intensive Care, Newborn Nursery/NICU to 13 years of experience working for Cook Children's Hospital as a Clinical Coordinator in an Out-Patient Specialty Clinic. My husband Shawn and I have two boys Zack and Kyle who are in 6th grade and 3rd grade here at Boon. We love Allen and have been residents for 14 years. When I'm not at Boon you can find me on a nearby baseall field or basketball court cheering on my boys.
My ultimate goal in the school clinic is to provide for your child's needs while encouraging prompt return to the classroom. I generally do not call parents with every clinic visit. I will notify parents when the student is running a fever (over 100 degrees F) or if a significant injury has occured at school. I try very hard to keep their visits to the clinic a positive experience and filled with reassurance.
I try very hard to communicate with students, parents, and teachers in many ways including: Newsletter notifications, letters home, phone calls, and e-mails. The easiest way to get a hold of me during school hours is via e-mail. I am busy at times with students, so phone calls might be hard to answer. Feel free to leave a message on my voicemail and I will return your call as soon as possible. Please refer back to my website frequently in order to find up-to-date health information, print off clinic forms, and find links to health-related websites and topics.
I look forward to a healthy year and am honored to care for your children.
