What makes the difference between a good nursing team and the exceptional one you’ll find at Memorial Health System? Our rapidly growing team is determined to continue building upon our reputation as a national leader in quality and progress in care. This objective requires something rare: a unique understanding of the value of nursing. And we have it, from the very top of our management team to the very smallest detail of care for every single patient.
That’s the reason we’ve made such a significant investment of time, effort, and resources in superior technology, comprehensive training, and thorough processes. We know that we have to prepare our nurses for anything—by providing everything they need to succeed. They have paid us and our patients back by performing at a consistently superior level throughout our system, bringing us prestigious accolades and impressive national recognition.
WHY EXPERIENCED NURSING PROFESSIONALS LOVE MEMORIAL:

Developed from an evidence-based curriculum that is customized to reflect our values and mission, it is offered twice a year, with sessions starting in September and April. Emphasizing leadership, professional roles, growth and development, and patient outcomes, it offers opportunities for networking and reinforcing your confidence and commitment to nursing.
