Los Alamitos Medical Center Celebrates First Group of Nursing Residents

Moving Health Forward
As part of our commitment to providing high-quality, compassionate care to the communities it serves, Tenet offers state-of-the art training to the next generation of healthcare professionals.  

In 2017, Tenet implemented its nurse residency programs enterprise-wide, opening the door to career opportunities at our facilities across the country.

“We are excited about the expansion of this program and the unique opportunities it offers to students,” said Dian Adams, Tenet’s chief nursing officer. "It is an honor to be a part of their journey to becoming a nurse.” 

Los Alamitos Medical Center in Los Alamitos, California, hosted a special luncheon to honor and recognize their first group of nursing students to complete the hospital’s residency program.

Throughout the eight-week program, the residents were mentored by nursing preceptors on professional development and enhancing the patient experience. 

“The ten members of this first residency class represent the future leaders of nursing at Los Alamitos Medical Center,” said Hannah Issac-Horan, the director of education at Los Alamitos Medical Center. 

Many states face a shortage of nurses, California most of all. The state is projected to need more than 300,000 nurses by 2030, according to the US Health Resources and Services Administration.

“I am grateful to Los Alamitos for the opportunity to participate in their nursing program,” said Teresa Martin, RN, at Los Alamitos Medical Center. “In addition to a valuable nursing education experience, I have been equipped with the skills necessary to ensure my patients are always heard, understood and receive the highest level of care each day.”
