Deborah Welch, MSN, RN
I was born and raised in Illinois. I am a graduate form Mississippi College School of Nursing's fifth class and became a nurse in emergency pediatrics upon graduation. I spent the next 25 years in emergency pediatrics, ambulatory pediatrics, pediatric endocrinology, and adult intensive care step-down. During that time I took time out to become a nurse practitioner with an emphasis in family health. Upon retirement from the University of Mississippi Medical Center, I spent 18 months in a rural health clinic focusing on family health, including geriatrics, acute adult care, and pregnancy and newborn care. Upon returning to Mississippi College in 2005, I taught fourth semester with an emphasis on pregnancy and newborn care as well as selected high acuity adult and pediatrics conditions. I currently teach in first semester with a focus on pregnancy and newborn care. I am the coordinator of NUR 341 Professionalism.
I have been married to Howard for over 25 years and we live in South Jackson.
