Job Description

HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Springhill is currently looking for an Associate Chief Nursing Officer to join our hospital leadership team.

Developing Future CNOs (DFCNO) is a 12-18 month “CNO-in-training” program designed to rapidly accelerate the development of candidates who aspire to be hospital Chief Nursing Officers (CNOs) and meet the program’s requirements. Program participants are placed in one of several host hospitals as an associate CNO who reports to the Host Hospital’s CNO. Upon successful DFCNO program completion, the Associate CNO applies for CNO jobs at hospitals with openings. This requires most program participants to relocate twice in two years.


The Associate CNO is responsible for developing and demonstrating the necessary qualifications to become a CNO while leading significant and successful improvements in the hospital’s nursing outcomes. The Associate CNO reports to the hospital’s CNO, is a member of the hospital’s senior leadership team, and manages others – with progressively increasing responsibility based on demonstrated ability and hospital needs. The Associate CNO is expected to complete the Developing Future CNOs program curriculum and other tasks as assigned

Our hospital provides a wide range of physical rehabilitation services, a vast network of highly-skilled, independent private practice physicians and HealthSouth therapists and nurses, and the most innovative equipment and rehabilitation technology, ensuring that all patients have access to the highest quality care.
