Mrs. April Stephenson


My name is April Stephenson. I will be teaching Foundations of Health Science and Health Science 2. This is my 7th year teaching at West! I am also a HOSA advisor and will be encouraging you to join! I have been a registered nurse for 30 years. The first 20 years of my nursing career were spent at WakeMed. I am married and have one grown son and 2 grown step-sons, all of whom graduated from West Johnston. I have 3 grandchildren. I have 3 dogs and 2 cats. In my leisure time, I love everything that has to do with the beach, reading, gardening, kayaking, and spending time with my family. Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.  Your time here at West is what YOU make it. Get involved! I love West and my blood runs teal!!
