OMC Welcomes Their Largest Nurse Residency Cohort
Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) would like to welcome its fifth Nurse Residency Cohort. This is OMC’s largest residency cohort to date, with 25 nurses joining OMC.
OMC’s Nurse Residency Program begins in January and June of each year. It is a 12-week program that assists recent graduates in the transition from nursing school into their new roles. Over the next 12 weeks, each of them will spend time in approximately 28 areas of the hospital. The goal is to find the perfect fit by the end of the 12 weeks depending on job openings as each of them will stay at OMC.
“Our goal with the nurse residency program is to train nurses to serve our community with compassionate care,” Karlee Marvin, Nurse Residency Coordinator said, “and bridge the gap between education and successful clinic practice.”
The June residency group consists of graduates from Missouri State University-West Plains; Cox College, Houston; Texas County Technical College, Houston; Chattahoochee Valley Community College, Phenix City, Alabama.
OMC is currently accepting applications for the January Cohort, with a deadline to apply by October 15. To be eligible, applicants must have completed an RN program within six months and have current RN licensure, preferred or scheduled, with successful completion of the NCLEX within 90 days.
