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 and Carlow University, where I received my BSN
and School Nurse Certificate.  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, BSN, RN, CSN
