Degrees and Certifications:
BB Owen family,
My name is Vm Smith, I go by Nurse Smith at school just because it seems easier for the students. I have a biomedical science degree from Texas A&M University. I have my nursing degree through Collin College and I then went on to complete my bachelors degree in nursing through the University of Texas @ Arlington.
I have been married for 26 years to my very wonderful and patient husband. I have two beautiful daughters; one is a graduate from Texas A&M and my youngest is playing soccer and going to school at Letourneau University.
I decided to go into the nursing field when I went on a mission trip to the Philippines w/my father-in-law. We did health screenings for the Philipino people and because of their lack of resources, I began to understand that educating them on their health was their most important asset. I came home from that mission trip and enrolled into school to begin my nursing path.
I started working at Medical City Plano as a RN in January of 2015 as a neuro PCU nurse. It was challenging and hard but I loved it and it has shaped me into the nurse that I am. I stayed on for almost 4 years. I decided to move into school nursing because I have always loved working w/children, (I taught preschool for seven years prior). I have been a school nurse for 5 years now and I absolutely love it. I know this is where I am supposed to be.
Please feel free to contact me w/any questions. I love being able to work w/families and students to give them the best chance at learning and success.
