LCA Welcomes Two School Nurses 

LCA has been blessed with the addition of two full-time nurses to ensure the health and well-being of our campuses. We are excited to have Leslie Whitaker at the Immanuel Campus and Nikki Gehring at the Rose Campus. 

   Nurse Leslie Whitaker

Nurse Whitaker has more than 20 years of experience that ranges from ICU, surgical, and outpatient nursing; and most recently, a clinical supervisor.  She also holds a certification in Pediatric Advance Life Support.

Nurse Gehring has a wide range of community health and school health nursing. She previously worked for the UK College of Nursing and the Lexngton-Fayette County Health Department. 

The campuses have isolation rooms (or clinics) which will be used for any individual exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 (or other illnesses) during the school day. Students are encouraged to visit the office and see the campus nurse, in the event he/she feels ill at any time.
