Nursing

NurseWe know you have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting a workplace. And it's one of the most important decisions you'll make. So why choose Adventist Health? Because we're not like everyone else.

Faith-based Workplace

Our mission and heritage inspire us to care for the whole person-mind, body and spirit. Our chaplains are readily available to offer support and encouragement. It is not uncommon to see staff members praying with patients prior to surgery or holding the hands of family members following the loss of a loved one.

Caring Environment

Our nurse leaders work hard to create a workplace where staff feel valued, supported and fairly treated. We encourage an open door, open communication environment where employees know that they can voice concerns or make suggestions without fear of repercussion. Above all, we strive to do what is best for our patients, which includes appropriate staffing. Appropriate staffing levels are an organizational priority. Recent improvements include improvements in monitoring to ensure appropriate staffing around the clock and the implementation of a nursing residency program to support efforts to ensure an adequate number of skilled staff.

Professional Development

We know this may not be your last job. In fact, it may just be one step along your career path. Whatever stage you're at, we're here to help you be a better nurse. Whether you're looking for internships, preceptorships, mentoring or opportunities for advancement, you'll find them all at Adventist Health.

What is a Professional Practice Model?

The Professional Practice Model adopted by Adventist Health represents the complex role of the professional nurse. Our professional practice model has a two-fold purpose:

  • To define and support nursing control over the care environment and the delivery of care
  • To capture the values, goals, and relationships that define the professional nursing identity

Why is a Professional Practice Model important?

Our Professional Practice Model helps us describe, guide, unify, and measure nursing practice throughout our organization. Our Professional Practice Model promotes professional identity, job satisfaction, high quality and consistent nursing care, improved quality of patient and family outcomes, and enhanced intra and interdisciplinary communication.
