Carol Sheehan – Nursing

Intro

I am Carol Sheehan R.N., Directer of Nursing. I have been working at CCCBSD for five years. During my time here I have met some pretty amazing students.  To see these kids overcome some really tough challenges brings me back day after day. I never leave here without learning something new.
