Mrs. Shelly Palmer MS, RN

Dear Wheatland-Chili Families and Friends,


My Name is Shelly Palmer and I am writing to introduce myself as the new school nurse at Wheatland-Chili Middle/High School.

A few things about myself:  I am an alumni of Wheatland-Chili, I am married, and I have three children ages 24, 19, and 16.  Our family recently moved back to Scottsville and are elated to be back in our home town after so many years.  I absolutely love children and approach nursing practice with the attitude of “what if this were my family member or child?” and I want to assure you that your child’s health and safety are my top priority. 

As far as my background and education; I am a registered nurse with a master’s degree in Healthcare Management from the University Of Rochester School Of Nursing.  I began my career in 2013 at the University of Rochester where I held a position in Medical Surgical Nursing spending the last three of those years as a Nurse Manager. 

I would like to let you know that I look forward to getting to know everyone throughout this upcoming year and while these are unprecedented times, I will do everything within my power to maintain transparency while providing families with the most up to date and accurate information related to COVID-19 policy and procedure.


I am looking forward to a great year!



Shelly A. Palmer MS, RN.
