Kara Koschmann

Assistant Professor


I teach in the Graduate Nursing Program with our Nurse Practitioner students. It is a privilege to educate future leaders and clinicians and learn from my outstanding colleagues along the way. Nursing is an ever changing and expanding profession that plays a critical role in health care delivery. Our rich history and ability to continuously adapt, coupled with the drive to view our work as a service for others, makes nursing a terrific vocational pursuit. I am a pediatric nurse practitioner and prior to coming to St. Catherine University I worked for the St. Louis County Department of Health in Missouri doing primary care for the underserved population. My clinic was in North County, St. Louis, only a few minutes from Ferguson. I enjoyed my work there immensely and learned so much in my service to the community where I also lived, played, shopped, and worshipped with my family. My own educational experiences played an integral role in my view of service and vocation and I am excited to share that with my students.
