About Mrs. Nickell
I am a licensed School Nurse in the State of Ohio and the School Nurse for Tecumseh High School, Tecumseh Middle School and Donnelsville Elementary. I am a 1981 graduate of Tecumseh High School, and began working for Tecumseh in 2004. I have been a nurse since 1987 after receiving my Associate Degree in Nursing from Clark State. In 2013, I received my BSN from Ohio University. In 2015, I received my Master’s Degree, with a focus in School Nursing, from Wright State University. In addition to working in the school clinic, I have over 20 years experience in the hospital setting, including pediatrics, PCU, telemetry, med-surg, and emergency room. I also have experience in urgent care and physician office settings. Several years ago I taught Lamaze classes and was an Instructor for Patient Care Technician in adult education.
My husband, Jeff (a Tecumseh graduate), and I are long time residents of New Carlisle and have been married 35 years. Our three children, are also Tecumseh High School graduates. They have all graduated from college and have successful careers.
In my spare time, I am enjoying my role as a grandma to my precious grandchildren, Kendall Ann and Jadon Todd. I am looking forward to my future grandchildren due during this school year.
am proud of our community and grateful for the opportunity to provide
care to students and staff in the community while promoting good health.
Please do not hesitate to contact me through email or phone with any
concerns you may have throughout the school year.
