Leah Schulz always wanted to be a nurse. She wanted to care for the sick but also work close to her hometown of Edgeley.
This week Schulz retires as director of nursing at the North Dakota State Hospital in Jamestown. She supervised 260 nursing staff to include 42 nurses, 20 license practical nurses and 198 direct care assistants.
“It’s been a good run,” Schulz said.
With a 94-year-old mother she would like to care for, Schulz said it was the right time to step down. She would also like to travel with her husband Glenn, also retired from the State Hospital after 33 years, and visit their three children, two stepchildren and seven grandchildren.
