Advanced Practice Nurse Dawn Clough joins OMC Neurosciences Center

Board Certified Advanced Practice Nurse (APRN) Dawn Clough has joined the medical team at Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Neurosciences Center, located at 1100 Kentucky Avenue in West Plains.

Clough joins neurologist Clara Applegate, MD in providing quality care for diseases of the nervous system, including brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles.

“I am very excited to return to Ozarks Medical Center. I have worked at OMC for a total of 15 years. During that time, I worked in the Urgent Care Clinic, Surgery, 2 South, and was the Stroke Team Coordinator.”

Clough holds a Master of Science in Nursing with a Specialty in Adult Gerontology Acute Care from St. Louis University. She also has a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Missouri-Columbia, and completed her Associate of Science in Nursing from Missouri State University-West Plains. Clough also holds a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar.

“Nursing has always been something I was drawn to. When I was 13, my dad had a heart attack and the next four years were spent in and out of the hospital. I got my nursing degree 10 years after my elementary education degree to follow that passion.”

“Nursing is education, they go hand in hand. My goal when interacting with patients is to make sure they understand everything about their treatment.”

Clough has 4 children and 7 grandchildren. She enjoys spending time with her family, bar-b-ques, hiking and boating.
