Dear Nursing Colleague:

Marsha Prater, Memorial Health System Chief Nursing Officer
Marsha Prater, Senior Vice President & Chief Nursing Officer

It has been my privilege to serve as Chief Nursing Officer at Memorial since 1991. More than buildings and equipment, Memorial is defined by the compassion, dedication and skill of our nursing staff. Memorial's Magnet designation, first awarded in 2006, proves that our nurses are among the best in the nation and that their practice reflects the highest standards of nursing excellence. It also validates Memorial's ongoing commitment to maintaining a work environment in which nurses can thrive and their career aspirations can be achieved.

Whether you're an experienced nurse, a new graduate, a nursing student or an individual who is considering nursing as a potential career choice, I think you'll be impressed by what it means to be a Memorial nurse!

Best regards,

Marsha A. Prater, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, FACHE
Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer
