Ms. D'Addio

My name is Dawn D’Addio.  I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Georgetown University. I came to SCTC with over 24 years worth of nursing experience.  I have been a teacher at SCTC for three years teaching Introductory to Health and Medical Sciences.  Some of my prior experience with nursing and health care has varied greatly.  I was a commissioned officer in the Unites States Army as part of the Army Nurse Corps for several years shortly after graduation from college.  I have worked in several different hospital settings to include medical surgical units, a psychiatric unit, pediatric units, a pediatric intensive care unit, neonatal intensive care units, labor and delivery, a hematology/oncology unit, a hematology/oncology clinic, and home health care. I have also been a school nurse at two different elementary schools and a high school.  Prior to teaching at the high school level, I taught both LPN and RN programs. 

I truly enjoy working with high school students and helping them pave their way to a career in health care.  I am passionate about exposing the student to the many pieces of health care.  I do not just assist them during the year I teach them but I am here to assist them in their choices for classes and college prep in the future.  I believe in the career and technical education and live by the pretense that we help our students build their tomorrow. 

In my spare time I volunteer as a nurse for Brainy Camps through Children’s Nations Medical Center- camps for kids that are medically fragile.  I love giving back to my community through opportunities like this.  This opportunity continues to fill my need to help others.  I hold active licenses in Virginia and West Virginia and I am CPR certified.

I have three children: two boys in college and a girl who is a senior at Courtland High School.  I like to spend my time with my children, travel and run.
