Education & Development

Our nursing leadership encourages our nurses to develop their professional and clinical skills. We have continuing education programs as well as a Clinical Nurse Advancement Ladder Program. We also have an advisory board which consists of every nursing director to help our administrators become better leaders and more effective at managing staff.

Our nursing units are managed not only by our Directors but also Resource Nurses who spend time between direct patient care and educating staff and assisting with daily operations of the unit. These hybrid positions provide an immediate and hands-on resource for our staff and managers.

Preceptor Program for New RNs

All of our nurses receive a comprehensive orientation & training program. New graduate RNs receive anywhere from a 10-12 weeks orientation on their unit as well as in the classroom. More experienced nurses’ orientation is tailored to meet their individual needs. All new RNs are assigned a preceptor to mentor, train and assess their skills.
