Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome Class! I look forward to working with you this semester and furthering your knowledge about the world in which we call healthcare. I go by Mrs. Osterhout. I am a product of Cabarrus County Schools. I graduated with an Associate Degree in Nursing from Cabarrus College of Health Sciences and then completed a Bachelors of Science in Nursing from UNCW. Right out of nursing school I worked at Atrium Cabarrus (formerly CMC-Northeast) on a Neurosciences unit. There I learned about the hospital setting and the role of the nurse in the acute area. The great thing about nursing is that there is that you can do a lot, so after awhile I moved to a family medicine practice where I worked directly with a provider to treat patients from newborns to geriatrics. I have learned many skills working in both outpatient as well as acute settings and now I am ready to pass that knowledge on to you.
I am CPR certified and Advanced Cardiac Life Support Certified (ACLS). I am currently pursuing a masters certificate at Appalachian State University for Career & Technical Education. With being in healthcare, we often consider ourselves as lifelong learners. These classes is one of the first steps to fantastic career in healthcare.
