The National Association of School Nurses (NASN) recently named R.B. Stall High School’s Kat Bouziane (pronounced bo-zee-ANNE) as an Outstanding Nurse for Students with Disabilities. Bouziane has been a school nurse at R.B. Stall since the start of the 2018-2019 school year and is in her fifth school year overall with Charleston County School District (CCSD).
CCSD Nurse Liaison Liz Brady explained that Bouziane supports school nurses across the district who work with students with developmental disabilities and medical complexities. This support includes working with the CCSD Nursing Services Department to develop best practice policies and procedures that are safe and comprehensive for students with disabilities.
While working with CCSD, Bouziane completed the LEND (Leadership Education in Developmental and Related Disabilities) Fellowship at MUSC. During her fellowship, she wrote the manual “New School Nursing: A Model of Care to Meet the Needs of Students with Neurodevelopmental Disabilities.” Bouziane has presented her manual at both regional and national conferences.
