Celena Cowen, RN, MSN is the U of D Jesuit School Nurse. The Health Clinic is found in the Student Affairs Office (SAO). Mrs. Cowen is at the school every day that school is in session. Mrs. Cowen joined our staff in 2022 after working in a variety of health care settings as a Nurse Practitioner since 2008.
Mrs. Cowen is available to provide health care to all students including, initiating care to an ill student, treatment of medical emergencies, including injuries, and the administration of medication that may be required during the school day.
While she is a licensed Nurse Practitioner, her duties do not involve the prescribing of medications or substituting for a student’s personal physician.
