Hi! My name is Pat Olszewski, Registered Nurse, and I am the school nurse at Thomas Jefferson School. I am commonly referred to as “Mrs. O.” by the students and staff. I have had the extreme pleasure of being able to work with the children and their families for the past 25 years. I received my diploma in nursing from St. Anne’s Hospital, in Chicago, Illinois in 1972. My career in nursing began on a medical-surgical floor at St. Anne’s. I took a break from nursing to raise my family and be a stay at home mom. On resuming my career I decided to apply for a school nurse position due to my love of children. I also worked part-time as a nurse in a local pediatric office for about 15 years. I live in Winston Knolls with my husband. I have 2 married sons, who have given me 5 beautiful granddaughters. Outside of work I enjoy reading, crossword puzzles, and working out at the gym. Interacting with the children each day brings me much joy, and definitely keeps me on my toes.
If I can be of any help you can reach me by calling 847-963-5402; or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
