Student transportation is a vital necessity for this class due to students traveling to the clinical site. I am not allowed to transport students in my personal vehicle due to liability. If you choose to ride with another student, please consult with your parent and the parent of the driver so all are aware. Please include the names of the driver and passengers on the permission slip which will be sent at a later date.
State Exam: Students who qualify to take the state nurse aide exam will complete the online application in class. The fee of $140 is payable by debit, credit card, or VISA gift card. No cash or checks are accepted. The fee is due in late November. Also needed for the state exam is a Government/State issued ID and a non-laminated Social Security Card signed by YOU, the student, and not a parent.
No copies of a social security card or photo ID are accepted. It must be the true social security card and not laminated!!

Welcome to Health Science II and Nursing Fundamentals! I am Mrs. Eckard, formerly Ms. Wesson, and I am in my thirteenth year of teaching here at LCST. I currently teach Nursing Fundamentals and Health Science 2. I graduated from Gardner-Webb University (Go Bulldogs!) with my Associate Degree and Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I worked at Frye Regional Medical Center on the Medical-Surgical floor for 5 years before starting to teach. Besides Medical-Surgical, I have also worked with cardiac patients and in the ER. I grew up in Newton, NC and graduated from Fred T. Foard High School, and currently reside in Maiden, NC. I enjoy teaching students my love of nursing/healthcare and encouraging them to be and do the best that they can.
