You chose a nursing career for a reason: you’re passionate about helping your patients. We are, too. But what is it about Covenant Health that makes us a little different?
First off, we ask you to sign a pledge to always put the patient first. Every single employee is essential to our success and to accomplishing our mission of improving the quality of life in our communities. And yes, we know it can be challenging to give your best every day. That’s why we provide you with the support, training, and resources that will allow you to succeed.
No day will be the same for you at Covenant Health. What should remain constant, though, is that you have a supportive environment where you feel safe and encouraged. We work to build strong relationships between our managers and staff and have a novice-to-expert model in most service lines. As you grow with us, you’ll act as a teacher and mentor, participating in decision-making and helping to develop systems that positively impact a patient’s experience.
Nursing is one of the few professions that offers so much mobility and flexibility. As a nurse with us, you are in charge of your own path. Do you prefer a fast-paced environment or a more regulated one? Do you want to get to know your patients or experience high patient turnover? With us, you are encouraged to explore different units and areas of specialty to find your passion. From cardiac to ortho to women’s services, there are opportunities available to you at Covenant Health that are unique in East Tennessee.
Are you looking for a place where you can grow your nursing career? We offer you a lot of flexibility through advancement and scheduling options. That may be why over 500 of our nurses have been with Covenant Health for more than 15 years.
We also encourage our nurses to develop professionally through continuing education, and then, we celebrate your success. Did you know that at Covenant Health, over 450 of our nurses hold advanced nursing certifications? As you progress in your career, we support certification in clinical specialties. We offer programs like student loan repayment assistance, tuition reimbursement, and internal continuing education opportunities.
It’s important to us to keep learning, too. Advancements in technology and methodology have changed the nursing field, year after year. We closely monitor these changes and adapt. Our nurses use Cerner system-wide for electronic health records and utilize some of the latest technology and equipment.
At Covenant Health, we are focused on our nurses as people. We promote a strong work/life balance and work to recognize you for the work you do every day. As part of our pledge, we promise to do our part to make Covenant Health the first and best choice. That includes being the first and best choice for our employees.
