Nursing Faculty

Welcome, Faculty and Students!

On behalf of Memorial Medical Center’s Magnet Nursing staff, I would like to welcome you to our facility for your clinical rotation. Memorial strives to be a national leader for excellence in patient care and, as MMC nurses, we are committed to making a difference in the lives of the patients we serve. We can only achieve these goals by creating an environment that attracts and retains exceptional nurses and supports the professional development of the next generation of clinical caregivers. At MMC, we strive to create a wonderful learning environment and facilitate a red carpet clinical experience for you!

We will work to prepare you for your clinical rotation and invite you into our culture of inquiry, where “It’s OK to Ask!” is not just a motto to engage patients and families in their care; it applies to you, too!

Memorial is a learning organization and we all benefit by learning from each other. We hope you enjoy learning in our Magnet Nursing environment!

Again, welcome!

Warmest regards,
Marsha Prater, PhD, RN, NEA-BC
