Nursing at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center
At St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center our nurses are part of a vital interdisciplinary team that consist of respiratory therapists, pharmacists, educators, social workers, chaplains, therapists and doctors. Our nursing practice is guided by our nursing vision “today and every day, we will work together with Humankindness for all to advance the science and art of nursing”.
The St. Joseph's nursing staff are encouraged to expand their skills and knowledge through certification in their area of specialization.
At St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, we understand that nursing education doesn't stop with licensure. We advance our healing ministry by helping our nurses engage in education that supports all aspects of professional development, which ultimately translates to better patient care for our community. St. Joseph’s is accredited through the American Nurses Credentialing Center, meaning, our nurses have access to learning and skill development activities that are trustworthy and are based on best practices and high-quality evidence. In addition, our education department operates a fully accredited Simulation in Healthcare center. This center provides simulated real life patient care scenarios, utilizing actors to help our nurses practice skills they learn in a high realism setting. We know that the continued professional development of nurses is the backbone of any successful organization and we are proud to support our nurses' growth and development.
Promoting a culture of inquiry and innovation is part of our foundation, and supports our ministry of serving the community. St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center is part of the Dignity Health Research Institute. To find out more, visit our Dignity Health Research Institute.
