Congratulations to Professor Patricia Leahy-Warren on her recent appointment as Head of School of Nursing and Midwifery UCC.
Patricia holds registrations for general nursing, midwifery and public health nursing and degrees at undergraduate, postgraduate, masters and PhD level. In her early career she was the first Masters and PhD graduate from the School of Nursing and Midwifery. She has both a national and international profile in the areas of community nursing and public health nursing as well as maternity care. Patricia has been instrumental in producing a number of key national reports that have had significant impact on clinical practice and policy at Government level, from the blueprint of the Commission on Nursing in 1998 to informing the Community Nursing and Midwifery Strategy in the recent Sláintecare programme. Patricia has made exceptional contributions to teaching and learning through programme development within the school and more broadly building doctoral attribute capacity across the university. Her leadership capabilities contributed to the increasing QS rankings of the School of Nursing and Midwifery over the years to reach number one in Ireland and in the top 40 worldwide.
