Ms. Jocelyn Gierlich
Meet Ms. Gierlich
Hello Lorane Elementary! My name is Ms. Gierlich and I am the Certified School Nurse for Lorane Elementary and Owatin Creek Elementary. I care directly for the students at Lorane, but I also work closely with the nurse and staff at Owatin to ensure that the medical needs of our elementary students at both schools are being met.
I am a mom to 3 amazing kids - Taylor, Noah, and Hayden! I am a graduate of Exeter School District and we live in the district, so my youngest children also attend Exeter. We love it here, and I am so glad to be a part of our great school district not only as an employee, but also as a Mom!!
I received my Diploma as a Registered Nurse from The Reading Hospital School of Nursing in 2005. In 2011, I received my Bachelor's in Science and Nursing (BSN) from Alvernia University. I completed my Certification in School Nursing (CSN) in 2019 after I was hired on by our district. I am currently working on my Master's in Education (M.Ed.) with a concentration in School Health, and I hope to have this completed fall of 2021.
Most of my nursing career has been spent in the hospital setting. I have 15 years of critical care experience, working with all ages from newborn to elderly. I spent 3 years as an Emergency Room nurse, which has proven to be invaluable to my role as a school nurse. I have worked as an agency/travel nurse for many years, which has taken me to many different facilities both within Pennsylvania and across many states within our great country. Medically caring for children has always been my favorite part of nursing, and I am so excited to be caring for the children within our community!!
