"We're creating an exciting opportunity for experienced nurses who want to grow their careers as well as nurses who come to us out of school," says LCH Chief Nursing Officer Penny Hammer, RN, MS. "We're also working to fill new critical care roles being created by the move to Palmdale Regional Medical Center, where we'll double the size of our Intensive Care Unit and triple the size of our Emergency Department." New Nursing OpportunitiesMs. Hammer explains that when nursing students graduate from the local community college, they are qualified for entrance into less acute patient care roles.This includes medical-surgical (med-surg) telemetry nurses, who provide basic healthcare to patients on med-surg units. Photo of Penny Hammer, RN, MSPenny Hammer, RN, MSCritical care nurses focus specifically on caring for acutely ill or unstable patients.Historically, however, to get the additional training needed to move into critical care, nurses had to leave the Antelope Valley.To recruit into these more intense roles, LCH would typically go outside the Valley as well.This is no longer the case -- and it's an important step forward for the entire community, Ms. Hammer says. "Consider that not only are we expanding, but also that nationally, between 2011 and 2020, an estimated 75 to 80 percent of nurses in critical care roles will retire.This program allows us to replace our outgoing nurses with nurses who have moved up the ranks right here," Ms. Hammer says. We believe this new training program helps us sustain that mission," Ms. Hammer says. Become Part of the Team
