Mrs. Susan Mason, RN BSN CSN
Middle School Nurse
Mrs. Mason began her nursing career in 1980, earning her B.S.N. from Niagara University's College of Nursing. Her first position was in the CCU (Coronary Care Unit) at Overlook Hospital, before transferring to the Emergency Department, accepting the position of charge nurse on the evening shift. She had the opportunity to work in varied settings in the early part of her nursing career, including private surgical practice, free-standing emergency center, and corporate nursing at AT&T. While raising her family, Mrs. Mason continued to work part-time in Emergency Departments at Overlook, and later Somerset Medical Center and Hunterdon Medical Center.
As her children grew older, Mrs. Mason became very involved with Union Township School, as a parent volunteer. It was during this time that it occurred to her that she really enjoyed the school setting, and loved working with children. School nursing was a perfect way to blend the two careers, and after completing her School Nursing Certificate at the College of New Jersey in 1998, she took over the position of Certified School Nurse at Union Township School, and has stayed on as the nurse in the Middle School, also serving as the Middle School Section 504 Coordinator as well as the HIB team.
Mrs. Mason and her family have lived in Union Township for 33 years.
In her spare time, Mrs. Mason loves to travel with her friends and family, especially any place with a beach and a palm tree.
