Stephanie Schmittou is the Chief Nursing Officer at Magnolia Regional Medical Center in Magnolia, AR. She obtained her Associate degree in nursing in 2000 from Southern Arkansas University and has worked many roles as a nurse, but her favorite is working in the emergency nurse role. She is a strong advocate of nurses pursuing higher education and has done so by completing her BSN in 2006 at Southern Arkansas University and her MSN in 2017 at Walden University.
Stephanie has been employed at MRMC for 20 years. She is a board member of the Arkansas Organization Nurses Leaders and a member of the American Organization of Nurse Leaders. Mentoring and leading others has always been a passion. Stephanie has served as adjunct nursing faculty at Southern Arkansas University and continues to assist with teaching others today within her facility.
In 2017, Stephanie was named as the CNO of her hometown hospital. She believes that nursing management is fundamental to providing quality care and building strong nurse teams. Nurses must trust their leadership and leaders must work alongside their team members to achieve the best outcomes. Healthcare changes require Stephanie to keep an open mind and choose creative ways to ensure staff and patients are cared for at all times. Stephanie has found that establishing a nursing leadership team at her facility provides strength and wisdom for her directors and herself during staff shortages and high census needs.
Stephanie is a wife and the mother of two children. She enjoys camping, working in the flower beds, and spending time with her family. Many would say she is the smile in the room and she can always be counted on for a good laugh.
