My name is Debra Ruetsch.  I am a Registered Nurse and NJ Certified School Nurse with a BSN from Rutgers and a MA in Education from Seton Hall.  After working many years in critical care and emergency room nursing, I began my career in school nursing at Columbia Middle School in 1989.  Ten years later I moved to Woodruff School.  School nursing is wonderful as it gives me the opportunity to do the two things I love - nursing and teaching.
    When not at school I like to travel with  my husband to National Parks and theme parks.  We have children and grandchildren in Kansas and Maryland.  I have discovered that being a grandparent is so much more fun than being a parent.
