Kasy Omann is a Family Nurse Practitioner practicing Adult and Pediatric Palliative Care at the St. Cloud Hospital in St. Cloud, MN. Kasy has worked in the nursing field for over 12 years. Her career began in the NICU and that led to her Doctorate of Nursing Practice project providing support to women during a subsequent pregnancy after a previous loss. Kasy’s most fulfilling work is helping parents navigate perinatal and neonatal end of life. Since she is passionate about this patient population, her journey has led her to develop a Pediatric Palliative Care Program at the St. Cloud Hospital. She sees the need, value, and benefit in navigating these crucial conversations in this vulnerable population. In the last year, she has integrated palliative care into the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Clinic, NICU, and Birthing Center.
