Meet the Nurse

Hello! My name is Katie Dobbertin, or “Nurse Kate." I am the District Nurse for Airport Community Schools.

I have been a Registered Nurse since 2007, spending the majority of my career (15 years) at Henry Ford Hospital as an Emergency Department RN.

Transitioning to the school nurse role was an easy decision, since it combines my two interests, health and education. It also allows me to work where my three kids attend school, while investing in the community that I care so deeply for.

I love interacting with students and enjoy working alongside Airport's staff and parents, while focusing on district health.

Welcome to Airport Community Schools' Health Services Department!

School nursing focuses on keeping your child healthy and safe throughout the school year. This is done through multiple avenues: evidence-based practice, collaboration with useful resources, promoting healthy lifestyle choices and the coordination of student-centered care.

Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns you may have in regards to your students' health and wellbeing. If your student has a specific condition, chronic or acute, Nurse Kate would love to hear from you.
