Dear Nursing Colleagues, Louise Thornell, Vice President/Chief Nursing Officer CHRISTUS St. Michael

It is with great pride that I introduce you to the nursing practice and nursing opportunities at CHRISTUS St. Michael’s Hospital in Texarkana, TX. We have celebrated our 100 years of living our mission of extending the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. We are recognized for our high ratings for patient satisfaction and patient outcomes.

Our most recent nursing satisfaction survey showed a very satisfied nursing staff with a supportive and safe practice environment.

Nurses also feel very supported in their professional development and autonomy and actively participate in nursing shared governance. In addition, many nurses have achieved national professional certification and advanced their nursing degrees.

We have submitted our application for the ANCC Magnet designation in demonstration of our nursing excellence. Please follow the links below to our Nursing Annual Reports for more information.
