Oakwood careers are filled with conferences, Continuing Education and interdisciplinary collaboration. Practices evolve. Talents are honed. Growth at the personal AND the departmental levels occur in tandem.
Hospital-wide, we are constantly reaching for higher standards. For example, in 2010, Oakwood Hospital & Medical Center’s trauma center was upgraded by the American College of Surgeons’ Committee on Trauma (COT) to a Level II Trauma Center.
Every year, Oakwood nursing leadership hosts an Evidence Based Practice Conference to highlight the latest advancements based in research and clinical evidence. “The Evidence Based Nursing Practice Conference gives nurses the opportunity to learn about the most credible and up-to-date research to guide their care of patients,” said Jennifer Paul, RN-BC, BSN.
