Nurse Jan Burdette

I'm Jan Burdette, School Nurse at T.L. Hanna High School.  I have been a school nurse for 19 years with 15 of those years at T.L. Hanna.  I have been a nurse for 27 years and was a public health nurse with SC DHEC for 8 years prior to working in Anderson School District Five.  I have certifications in CPR, AED, IV therapy and I am a BLS CPR instructor.

In 2015, after a lengthy process and going before the Senate Medical Affairs Committee in Columbia, I was appointed by Governor Nikki Haley as a Board Member on the South Carolina State Board of Nursing. It has been an honor and privilege to represent my fellow nurses.  

I started my college career in Elementary Education at Lander University before changing my major to nursing at Tri-County Technical College.  I feel that I have "the best of both worlds", being a nurse in an educational setting.  I truly love my job and coming to "school" each day.  I strive to treat each student as if they were my own child.  I am married and have a grown daughter that attended T.L. Hanna High School. 

If I can ever be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to call or email me.  


    To positively impact the health and wellness of the school community, thereby enabling students to become successful learners.
