Closet Confidential: Pamela Watson

Posted: Sunday, January 26, 2014 1:00 am

Pamela Watson, dean of the University of Texas Medical Branch School of Nursing, didn’t grow up with aspirations of becoming a nurse. She was a high school cheerleader in her hometown of Westport, Conn., was voted class sophisticate and made most of her own clothes. One of seven siblings, Watson went off to college but came home after one semester to test the waters in the real world.

She landed a job working for a doctor’s office where she took X-rays, EKGs, assisted with minor surgeries and handled all the billing. It was during that time the groundwork was laid. Watson went on to obtain her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nursing and eventually her Doctor of Science from Boston University.
