I graduated from Bradley University with a BSN in Nursing in 1976 and began my nursing career at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago working as a Charge Nurse and then a Staff Nurse Specialist in Orthopedics until 1980. I moved on to work at the Cook County Dept. of Public Health as a Public Health Nurse until 1983 and then was offered the Head Nurse position in Pediatrics at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Chicago where I remained until my first son was born. While my children were growing up I worked as an agency nurse so that I could be home with my children as much as possible. In 1996 Pastor Paul Lindstrom and Dr. Bennett asked me to be the first Christian Liberty Academy School Nurse, and the Lord has led me to make this my home since that time. I initially started in the School Office and also shared secretarial duties with the School Office staff. I currently still do the school emails. I have taught Culinary Arts here and also coached Varsity cheerleading, both of which I thoroughly enjoyed.
My husband and I came to faith after hearing the Gospel from Pastor Paul Lindstrom at my brother-in-law’s wedding and we have been here at the Church of Christian Liberty ever since. My faith in the Lord Jesus Christ defines who I am, in and out of the Nurse’s Office and classroom. Through my faith, I know that I have been called to be here at CLA at this time. I pray and must have faith that the Lord will use me to lead and guide the students He puts in my life to develop and examine their own faith.
My husband, Ken, and I live in Palatine. We were both born in Chicago and raised in the north suburbs. We have 3 sons, all of whom graduated from CLA, and three grandchildren. I enjoy travel, cooking, painting, crafts, gardening, and most importantly spending time with our children, grandchildren, and family. We have been members of the Church of Christian Liberty since 1987.
"Hello, my name is Nancy Kramer and I have been the School Nurse for Christian Liberty Academy since 1996. I have experience in Hospital, Community Health, and Agency Nursing. I have loved all aspects of nursing, but I must say I have really enjoyed being a School Nurse and feel very blessed to be at CLA."
