Certified School Nurse


My name is Kathy Verbel.  I am the certified school nurse  for Arlington, Hamilton and Morey Elementary Schools.  I rotate between these three schools,  managing the care of our students in grades K-4.   With over 35 years of nursing experience, my background includes hospital, critical care and home health nursing.  

I received my BSN at William Paterson University in Paterson, NJ, then both my school nurse certification and M.Ed at East Stroudsburg University.  In 2000 I joined the faculty at Stroudsburg as the certified school nurse of the Intermediate School.  I transferred to the Middle School at its opening,  and then moved to the elementary level in 2014.  

School nurses play a critical role in making sure children are healthy, safe, and ready to learn.   As your child's school nurse my goal is to help meet their individual health needs, partnering with parents and teacher. Together we can develop plans that remove health care barriers, allowing your child to reach their full potential at school.

A bit about me:

Originally from NJ, I moved to the Poconos in 1982.   Since then I've lived with my husband, Blake,  in East Stroudsburg.  My daughter Erin, lives in S.C, with my grandson Kason. My son Ryan, lives in CA. In my spare time I enjoy camping, walking, reading, scrapbooking , quilting, spending time with family and friends,  and being " Grammie" to Kason.
