We are happy to announce that Kathryn (Kat) Ward RN, is the winner of Medina Regional Hospital’s first ever Nurses Week essay contest. Kat works in the Emergency Department and in her essay, What it Means to be a Nurse, she eloquently explained what this means to her. As the winner, Kat receives attendance at a nursing conference of her choice. Her essay will also be featured on the hospital’s Facebook page and in the Texas Organization of Rural and Community Hospital’s (TORCH) Rural Matters magazine.

Kathryn “Kat” Ward is the youngest of 11 children and one of 4 Registered Nurses in the family. Having worked in Long Term Care as an LVN for 11 years filling various roles as Charge Nurse, TILE Nurse, MDS Coordinator and Assistant Director of Nurses, she went back to school and obtained her RN in 2016. As an RN she served as the Director of Nurses in Long Term Care, but was able to transition to the Emergency Department where she is able to be back at the bedside where she truly loves to be.
