SCHOOL NURSE

Kelly Powal, RN

Medications at School Resources

 

I have been an RN since 2008 and started with St. Thomas the Apostle School in 2013.  I have a background in pediatrics and adults within the hospital, outpatient and school settings.

I am so grateful to provide an open door to students and their families who may need my health-based support (or who may just want to stop in to say, “Hello!”).  One of my favorite nursing quotes is, “As a nurse, I know that every day I will touch a life or a life will touch mine.” -Unknown

The most efficient way to contact me is via email at kpowal@stthomascl.org, but I can also be reached at 815.459.0496, ex. 205.
