Our Commitment to Care

Hear from Wes Boles, Director of Trauma Services at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center. In 2017, he received the HCA Healthcare Excellence in Nursing Award for Professional Mentoring, an HCA Healthcare Award of Distinction. It is awarded to a nurse who advances nursing practice in any clinical setting or specialty by guiding or supporting career development for individuals or groups of nurses or by advancing evidence-based nursing knowledge. He also received the Trauma Innovation Award from HCA Healthcare's Trauma Clinical Service Group for innovation of the OFI System.

StaRN Graduate Nurse Program

Our StaRN program is a 14-17 week paid Nurse Residency Program featuring didactic and specialty clinical training in acute care. The length of the program varies by the specialty that you are pursuing from Medical/Surgical, Telemetry/PCU/Stepdown, Oncology, Behavioral Health, Critical Care ICU, Emergency, and more. StaRN allows new registered nurse graduates to obtain acute care nursing experience through training and clinical preceptorship.
