School Nurse and Health Services
Douglas MacArthur School Nurse
Brittany Linke, School Nurse
I am so excited to be working at Douglas MacArthur for the remainder of the school year. I'm a New Jersey native but have lived across the DMV area for the past 6 years. I completed my Bachelor's of Nursing through Chamberlain University and have my Registered Nurse licensure for multiple states including DC. For the past year I have been working as a nurse in the Emergency Department of Medstar Washington Hospital Center in DC and before that, I worked on a post-surgery unit and COVID units at a community hospital in Woodbridge, Virginia. I have also worked in public and private schools in New Jersey and Maryland as a substitute teacher and Field Hockey coach for multiple years while I was in school. I'm very excited to now be in the school environment as a Nurse!
