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 Compass Academy routinely.

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 17 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 County's 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 14 and one 11, as well as our little girl Georgia, who just turned 2. Our boys keep us busy with soccer, baseball, and scouts throughout the year.

I am very happy to be part of the Warrior 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
