Raymond Ellis Elementary School Nurse

¡Hablo español!

My name is Linda Cardenas. I am the nurse for Raymond Ellis Elementary School. I began my nursing journey when I completed my associate's degree in nursing from the College of Lake County in December of 2015. I began working as a registered nurse in several different settings as an agency nurse. I've covered nursing homes, schools, wellness centers, detox and rehabilitation centers, and private duty assignments.

I began working at Ellis Elementary in August of 2017 after covering as a substitute nurse in 2016. I went on to complete my bachelor's degree in nursing in 2020 from Olivet Nazarene University. I then completed my School Nurse Certification in 2022 from Illinois State Mennonite College of Nursing. I am now also certified as a vision and hearing technician.
