School Nurse
Kara Cummings

"I was born and raised in Asheville and I have always wanted to give back to the community that helped raise me! I earned my Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing at Western Carolina University in 2014 and started my career at Duke Children’s Hospital on the bone marrow transplant unit. I moved back home to work at Mission Children’s hospital to work with general pediatrics and specialize with the oncology/hematology population. Children have always been a passion of mine and I think it is of utmost importance to keep them healthy so they can have the best education possible- which is why I am excited to be the school health nurse at Buncombe County Early College and Middle College! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me for any health related questions regarding your physical or mental health!"
