Genet Elementary School Nurse Meg Condo was selected as one of the top 25 nurses in the Capital Region by the Albany Times Union in its “Salute to Nurses” edition earlier this month.

Condo was selected from more than 500 nominations and attended a reception on May 13 at the Marriott on Wolf Road.

“I’m very humbled,” Condo said as students filtered in and out of the health office. “I love what I do.”

Condo, who has worked in the District since 2004 and been the school nurse at Genet for the past four years, treats students for illnesses and injuries, conducts health screenings, dispenses medication and educates students and families about health and wellness issues.

Condo was nominated by a parent of two Genet students, one of whom has Type 1 Diabetes and requires monitoring of his insulin levels throughout the school day. Condo went above and beyond following the diagnosis, making visits to the hospital and their home, and attending Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation trainings.

“I’m not sure I wouldn’t have suffocated with fear and anxiety had it not been knowing Meg was there for Jack,” Kati Johnson wrote in her nomination letter. “For 6 hours, 5 days a week I can breathe easy.”

With four kids of her own, it’s easy for Condo to put herself in a parent’s shoes.

“I treat them like they’re my own,” Condo said.
