Ms. Melissa Golden-Barnett RN, BSN, PEL-CSN

I have been working as a Certified School Nurse here at BJ Ward Elementary School since August 2008. I have the best job in the world, and am so lucky to work with such an amazing staff, amazing students and amazing families.

I am a mother of three boys who are my pride and joy, and three crazy cats.

I am not only a nurse and mother, I am also a student. I am working on obtaining my Masters of Science in Nursing and becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner.

In my free time I like to fish, craft, doodle and travel.
