All District Health Rooms are staffed by Certified School Nurses, Registered Nurses or Licensed Practical Nurses during school hours. The Certified School Nurse (CSN) is an RN who has a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing and a PA Department of Education Certification in School Nursing. Our district CSN's must cover more than 1 building, therefore the Assistant School Nurses cover the schools on the days the CSN's are assigned elsewhere.
Lynn Welliver is the Certified School Nurse at Salisbury Elementary School and Salisbury Middle School. Mrs. Welliver has her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Cedar Crest College. Before discovering her love for school nursing, Mrs. Welliver was employed as a staff nurse at Lehigh Valley Hospital for 10 years and during that time worked on cardiac units and later, the labor and delivery unit. After leaving LVHN, Mrs. Welliver worked at an outpatient surgical center and an infusion center. She then became a nurse assistant at Salisbury High School, which inspired her to return to Cedar Crest College to obtain her School Nurse Certification (CSN). Mrs. Welliver has two daughters and loves outdoor activities like hiking, camping, and going to the beach with her family.
