McAllen, TX (PRWEB) December 7, 2006
Loretta Walsh, RN, MSN, M.Ed., of the McAllen Independent School District (MISD), has been named Professional of the Year in healthcare for special education students by Cambridge Who's Who. While inclusion in Cambridge Who's Who is itself an honor, only one member in each discipline is named Cambridge Who's Who Professional of the Year. The Cambridge Who's Who selection committee hand picks these special Who's Who honorees based on accomplishments, academic achievement, leadership, and service.
Walsh has spent 54 years in nursing. She worked in hospitals for 32 years in orthopedics, medical/surgical pediatrics, surgery, and the emergency room. An indefatiguable healthcare professional, Walsh is currently an MISD staff nurse for special education students who need individual care due to their medically fragile condition. MISD is a multicultural community in which all students are actively engaged in the learning process. Assisted by technology and the McAllen community, Walsh helps to create a safe, nurturing and challenging environment where students can thrive.
Walsh received a master's in education supervision from the University of Texas Pan American, a diploma in nursing from St. Joseph's Hospital, and a bachelor of science in nursing from St. Louis University.
