The Top Reasons Why Covenant Health Nurses Love Their Career

Posted on September 1, 2017

Covenant Health offers an excellent work environment for nurses at all stages of their career.  Here are the top 5 reasons why Covenant Health nurses love what they do.

#1 Flexibility

Many nurses love the flexibility of their work schedule to help balance their professional and personal lives. Typically working three 12-hour shifts in a row which allows them to have consecutive days off in a work week.  This allows nurses to stay engaged in outside hobbies, family, and other interests. 

When you join the Covenant Health family, we recognize clinical excellence and promote advancements at all levels. We work to encourage and promote a balanced lifestyle.  By joining our team, you will have the ability to grow in your career and maintain a lifestyle you have always wanted.

#2 Environment

Many nurses enjoy the fast-paced and high-pressure environment of an inpatient or outpatient setting. On a typical day a nurse will have a demanding schedule, having to visit several patients throughout the day.  Yet, it is this exact environment that nurses live for.  They find the demands and pace motivate them do a job-well done. This keeps nurses from being bored at work.

The friendly and caring environment we provide at Covenant Health is a bonus for our nurses who also enjoy the fast-paced and demanding environment. At Covenant Health, we aim to provide an environment where nurses feel safe and encouraged while on the job.  We aim to build strong relationships between our managers and staff, creating an enjoyable work environment for all.

#3 Making a Difference in Lives

One of the most rewarding aspects of being a nurse is the ability to make a difference in a patient’s life. Nurses are able to provide a degree of comfort and security throughout a patient interaction.  In addition, nurses appreciate the respect and genuine gratitude they receive from their patients’.

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.

#4 Variety of Fields

Nurses value the mobility that their profession has to offer. Throughout their career nurses are able to move around to different units and different areas of focus to find which field they enjoy best.  This opportunity to move around keeps nurses engaged throughout their career.

While at any of our Covenant Health locations you will see our staff working to provide the best care in all areas. From HomeCare Hospice to the ER, our nurses have the opportunity to practice in many different areas.  We encourage our nurses to be curious and continue to learn about the different fields within our hospitals and facilities so that they may have a long career with Covenant Health.

#5 Continual Learning

Throughout their careers, nurses have a fascination with gaining more knowledge about the medical field. Nurses are encouraged to take classes and continually educate themselves about new practices, scientific breakthroughs and medicine. Nurses gain tremendous satisfaction when they are able to educate their patients and have answers to their questions. In addition, they love to share their knowledge with others.

Covenant Health encourages  our nurses to  continue formal education. Whether through taking courses at headquarters or even returning to school, taking advantage of our tuition reimbursement program.  At Covenant Health, we want our employees to continue to gain the tools and knowledge they need to give excellent patient care.
