BEND, OR -- Bend Senior High's nurse is tops in the state. Connie Hoffstetter has been named Oregon School Nurse of the Year by the Oregon School Nurses Association.


Hoffstetter was nominated by BSH Principal Christopher Reece, who called her passionate, caring and phenomenal with students. She began with the Bend-La Pine School District in 2000 and first worked with students and schools in La Pine for three years before moving to Bend High. She also serves students at Marshall, Bend's alternative high school.
In a statement released Wednesday, Hoffstetter said, "I feel really ecstatic to be recognized. It means a lot." She added, "It's not a job, it's my passion and I learn something new everyday. The key is being flexible. You can never plan your day. You can go from helping with injuries, to mental health concerns, to managing acute illnesses, to working with health education."
