Nurses - Ms. Aton & Ms. Hodge

s Caroline Aton, RN, NCSN

Because I care for your children, you may want to know a little about me:

I am a nationally certified school nurse and a registered nurse with a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Emory University. I have been working as a nurse in various capacities since graduating in 1981. I was first a pediatric nurse specializing in burn care and later in the care of children post-surgery. I also worked on a pediatric oncology unit when they needed additional help. After moving to Georgia, I took a job in an open heart ICU that handled both pediatrics and adults and was there for 12 years until our move to Mt. Pleasant. I worked as a nursing supervisor for a few years and later, in 1996, started as a school nurse, thanks to my youngest child. One day, she got into the car after school and informed me that “Daddy hates helping us with our homework”. I immediately parked the car and went into the school to meet the nurse. As it turns out, she was retiring at the end of the year! When I started as a school nurse, there were very few of us and I was assigned to five schools! Thankfully, as the years went by, my assignments were to fewer and fewer until finally, just one school! I have been very happy as a school nurse and my kids (now all married) got all the help with their homework that they needed!
