Welcome students, parents and staff of LCCTC!

I invite you to view the entire nurse's web page to get information about health & wellness.  My goal is to promote the health and safety of our students so they are ready to learn. 

I am a graduate of St. Francis School of Nursing, Carlow University, where I received my BSN and School Nurse Certificate, and Cambridge College where I earned my Master of Education degree.  I started my nursing career at St. Francis Hospital on an adult Med/Surg Unit but my heart belonged to children.  A year later I was hired on the Adolescent Medical Unit at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. I specialized in the nursing care of adolescents with chronic conditions such as diabetes, seizures, asthma, cancer, sickle cell, cystic fibrosis and many other diseases.  After 18 years at Children's, I decided to make the transition to school nursing.  I completed two long term school nurse substitute positions followed by day to day substituting in five area school districts.

I really enjoy school nursing and look forward to meeting all of the students!  Please feel free to contact me anytime to discuss your adolescent's health. 

Best Wishes for a Healthy & Successful School Year!

Maryann Cwynar, M.Ed., BSN, RN, CSN
