My name is Donna Knepp and I am the School Nurse at Rosa Parks Elementary. I have been the nurse here since our school opened in 2006. I have worked in Prince William County since 2004 and have been a nurse for 29 years. I graduated from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.  All of my years working have been in pediatrics.
