Covenant Health provides an environment for professional nurse practice that is evidenced-based, where registered nurses are in charge of their own practice, where they feel safe and healthy, are well-oriented, and have lifelong opportunities for learning and skill development. We support certification in clinical specialties and have a novice-to-expert model in most service lines.
Nurses participate in decision making and help develop systems that address patient care delivery and the total patient experience. The registered nurse (RN) is clearly the leader of the interdisciplinary team and has the autonomy to make decisions around his or her own practice and the safe care of our patients. We recognize clinical excellence and promote advancement at all levels, and also encourage a balanced lifestyle.
Covenant Health nurses act as teachers and mentors, and are involved in both professional and community activities. Our registered nurses are highly respected and valued, and are seen as key leaders in helping Covenant Health achieve its strategic vision of providing the best care.
