Atmore Community Hospital

OVERVIEW
The ACH Nurse Residency Program is a program aimed at recruiting nurses to Atmore Community Hospital, while offering a more comprehensive on-boarding and education process by rotating program nurses through the four main nursing departments – Med/Surg, ICU, ED, and Surgery. This program will be eighteen (18) months of full-time, paid employment with emphasis on providing in-depth, hands-on education focused on challenges faced by new nurses. This will expose new nurses to various fields of expertise and specialties not afforded to the collective whole to give them experience and perspective to better identify departments that they best fit.
