We are proud of our Magnet status and support nurses to achieve and retain certification.

Technology savvy nurses enjoy a journey of lifelong learning—there are always new diseases, interventions, pharmaceuticals, and research discoveries to be applied. Valued for our innovation, creativity, and dedication to all patients, nurses here participate in patient education, discharge planning, committees, and the development of unit-based and research protocols that mold future practice.

Why I Choose Nursing in Medicine

Amanda C. Owen

"I started on Nelson 4 as a new grad, precepting new staff within my first year and running charge within my second. My nurse manager constantly challenged me to advance my career goals - which led me to earn my certificate as a wound care specialist. Now, as a unit-based expert, I enjoy a high level of autonomy and work closely with the entire interdisciplinary team. I truly believe I've had opportunities not available at other institutions."
