Degrees and Certifications:

I graduated from Missouri State University - West Plains with an Associate of Science in Nursing and am a Registered Nurse (RN) with the Missouri Board of Nursing.

Mrs. Jordan Hughes RN


I began working as the school nurse at Richards in August of 2008. My goal is to optimize every student’s capacity for learning by providing care of illness and injury, promoting health education and fostering a safe and nurturing school environment. 

I live in West Plains with my husband of thirteen years, Josh. Outside of school, you’ll find me with family.  I am a bookworm, a foodie (who believes in loving people through their tummies) and an explorer of the beautiful Ozarks. 

I’m proud to be a Richards Rocket, and I’m here to help! Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year.
