Halloran, a nurse since 1964, practiced occupational health and nursing administration for over twenty-five years before being tenured in 1989 on the University of North Carolina School of Nursing Faculty. He completed his MPH degree in Hospital Administration at Yale [1975] before attending the University of Illinois for doctoral studies in nursing[1980]. His research reports have concentrated on nurse staffing using automated patient classification techniques to distinguish patients nursing needs from the hospital services directed by physicians. With grants from the W.K. Kellogg and Robert Wood Johnson Foundations he has worked with the International Council of Nurses to translate and reprint Virginia Henderson's most important writings and produced a monograph titled 'Notes on a Peaceful Death'. Dr.Halloran's studies now focus on the historical development of nursing (wo)manpower during and after the American Civil War. Dr. Halloran taught nursing at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in China for two years, 1999-2000. He has received support from the China Medical Board of New York and studies the origination of two Chinese hospitals; Peking Union Medical College Hospital where his cousin, a Johns Hopkins graduate nurse taught from 1924- 1928, and the 1917 Xiang-ya Hospital in Changsha, Hunan where Yale missionaries established the hospital with support from Edward S. Harkness. Dr Halloran has been active in University governance through leadership in the Chapel Hill Chapter of the American Association of University Professors and membership on Faculty Council.
