School of Nursing Names New Dean, Adds Advisor

Mon, Feb 4th, 2013

Hocking College is pleased to welcome Tammy Keith as new Dean of the School of Nursing and Tarra Begley-Hoops as the new Clinical Placement Advisor.
 
Keith is a 1983 graduate of Hocking College. She was hired in 1983 as an RN Supervisor at Logan Health Care Center. She began her career teaching at Hocking College in 1988.

In 1989, Keith decided to dedicate her time primarily to Hocking College. In 2012, she became Associate Dean at the School of Nursing. In September 2012, she took on the role of Interim Dean, until this became permanent January 1.
 
"I am very excited for the opportunity to assume the role as Dean of the School of Nursing. Working at Hocking College has allowed me to grow in ways I never could have imagined," Keith said. "As an alumnus of the Nursing Program, I am fully aware of the challenges and rewards of being a student and graduate of Hocking College School of Nursing."

Begley-Hoops is a 2006 graduate of Hocking College's Office Administration program. In 2009, she became the Office Coordinator for the School of Nursing at Hocking College. As Clinical Placement Advisor, Begley-Hoops is responsible for establishing and maintaining clinical placements, managing clinical facilities activities and ensuring compliance with facility requirements.
 
"Visiting each of our clinical facilities has been a priority for me as the opportunity our facilities provide to our students is an essential piece to their education.  Dean Keith and I have currently made eleven visits and plan to finish up the visits by the end of spring term," Begley-Hoops said.
