We are pleased to note that Miss Rosaleen McKernan, daughter of Mr. Bernard McKernan, Summer Hill, Warrenpoint, ex-Town Clerk of Warrenpoint, has received a good appointment in connection with the District Nursing Association at Newtown, Montgomeryshire, North Wales. This appointment is chronicled in the following terms in the “The Montgomeryshire Express and Radnor Times,” of the 25th inst.
‘The Committee of the Newtown District Association have on the recommendation of the Queen Victoria Jubilee institute of Nurses, appointed Nurse Rosaleen McKernan as District Maternity Nurse. Nurse McKernan who is the daughter of the Town Clerk of Warrenpoint, County Down, Ireland, comes to Newtown with the highest credentials and qualifications, and she has already made a very favourable impression. The Committee are to be congratulated on a having made an excellent successor to Nurse Hughes, and we feel sure the services of Nurse McKernan will be of great benefit to the town.’
Miss McKernan graduated in the Incorporated Belfast Maternity hospital in the year 1912, and after obtaining the Diploma of that Institution, she was appointed by the Newry Board of Guardians as a Midwife of the Warrenpoint Dispensary District. She resigned this position in March 1915, and as a result of stiff opposition in Owen’s College, Manchester in December last, she was awarded the Certificate of the Central Midwives Board.
Her many friends in Warrenpoint are glad to hear of her latest success.
