As the national managing director at HRadvantage, she works closely with human resources departments to recruit, retain, deploy, develop and reward talent within healthcare organizations across the U.S.
Dr. Suzanne and Dr. Mark Marnocha Student Organization Meeting Room: A gathering place to empower students involved in the Oshkosh Student Nurses’ Association (OSNA) and the Great Lakes Chapter of Men In Nursing. The Marnochas believe student passion for nursing grows through involvement with student organizations and student-faculty collaborations.
The Cheryl L. Mellenthin ICU/Trauma Simulation Suite:
A training center for upcoming generations of nursing students to prepare for today’s fast-paced, healthcare environment. Mellenthin received a BSN from UW Oshkosh in 1979. As a dedicated ICU nurse, she understands the importance of hands-on, real-life nursing educational experiences.
