Area graduate of nursing program honored


American Senior Communities and Health & Hospital Corporation recognized April Rohde, a registered nurse at Seymour Crossing, at the Opportunities to Nursing Excellence, aka O2NE, Program luncheon Wednesday at The Bridgewater Club in Carmel.

Rohde was one of eight recipients from across Indiana.

The scholarship program is an educational opportunity presented by ASC and HHC to promote the professional growth of their employees who seek to advance their career in nursing.

The program assists caregiver staff in becoming licensed practical nurses and registered nurses with funding to accredited nursing schools while maintaining their current jobs. HHC covers tuition and book fees while providing participants with the flexibility to complete their education without being penalized financially with a commitment to work at an HHC facility for an agreed upon period of time post-graduation.

To date, this program has provided opportunities for more than 200 graduates, many of whom are working in clinical management positions. More than half of the program’s participants are on track to become registered nurses.

“We are incredibly fortunate to have a wealth of clinical talent across the state here at American Senior Communities, and our recent O2NE graduates are no exception,” said Alicia Sims, chief nursing officer. “Supporting our team members in advancing their careers is an important endeavor that we prioritize at ASC.”
