Meet our School Nurse

Welcome to the H.M. Arndt Warriors tribe! My name is Kristen Killian and I serve here at H.M. Arndt Middle School as the school nurse. I am shared between Arndt and Challenger High School. I am routinely at Arndt on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week, and my weekly schedule can be reviewed below.

I am a former H.M. Arndt student and graduate of Saint Stephens High School, Class of 2000! I graduated from Winston Salem State University with my bachelors in nursing and have more than 15 years of experience as a nurse in several areas of nursing which include: oncology, women's health, family planning and STD prevention. I joined Catawba Counties public health school nursing team in December 2018.

Outside of my nursing career, I am married to my high school crush (also a former Saint Stephens Indian) and we have two amazing boys, one 12 and one 9, as well as  new addition, a sweet baby girl Georgia, born in August. Our boys keep us busy with soccer, baseball, and scouts throughout the year.

I am very happy to be part of the Warriors family here at Arndt and I strive to keep your child healthy and safe throughout the school year. Please feel free to contact me with any health related concerns your child may have.

For non-urgent related concerns please email me at
