Oklahoma City University’s branch nursing education program in Duncan has named a new program coordinator. Cindy Rauh, vice president of patient care services and chief nursing officer for Duncan Regional Hospital, will coordinate the joint program between OKCU’s Kramer School of Nursing and the hospital.

Rauh has served in her role at DRH since 2004. Prior to that, she held other positions at the hospital including director of acute care services, director of the Chisholm Trail Hospice and as an intensive care unit nurse. She was also a nurse for several years in New Mexico.

She helped DRH earn the Thompson Reuter’s Top 100 Hospitals status for three out of its four years and was involved in helping the hospital achieve top percentile quality scores. She also helped establish the hospital’s Outpatient Imaging Center, Wound Care Center, inpatient and outpatient psychiatric services, Comprehensive Rehab Unit and cardiology services.

Rauh holds a doctorate degree in nursing practice and a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Oklahoma City University, and a master’s degree in nursing from the University of Oklahoma.

The OKCU-DRH Bachelor of Science in Nursing program began in 2016 and recently accepted its second cohort. It includes the nursing school’s BSN and RN-to-BSN programs. The Duncan Regional Hospital Health Foundation provides up to 15 competitive scholarships awarded at the start of each academic year.
