My name is Jennifer Arbeiter and I am proud and happy to be the Registered Nurse for the Bush Middle School Bulldogs. This is my 5th year as a school nurse for NEISD but I have been a nurse since 2001. I’ve been able to gain great experiences in nursing in many settings including med-surg, physical rehabilitation, pediatrics, women’s services and camp nursing. It’s a privilege to care for people in all ages and stages from a newborn taking her first breath to an old man taking his last. I think nursing is a unique profession that allows me the ability to interact with all people of all ages in a distinctly personal way. I love spending time with my husband and children and our small zoo of cats, dogs and chickens. For fun I like to go camping, hiking, and caving and my favorite vacations include visits to our beautiful National Parks. I look forward to meeting you and caring for your student.

Lice or dandruff? That is the question.


I am often asked by a parent or teacher to check a student for head lice and well over 90% of the time what I find is actually a dermatology issue such as dandruff. Let me encourage you to ask me to check! I hate the thought of families being subjected to treating lice when […]



Do you hear the coughing?


Nurse Dani has some great advice for parents to assess and treat their children’s coughs: Winter is in full swing, and with the cold temperatures, I see many families being hit by respiratory illnesses.
