Professional Development — Nurses are supported to be lifelong learners through many avenues including: computer based education, simulation lab training, review courses for specialty certification exams or attendance at symposiums and conferences to bring the most current best practices to the bedside.
Advancements in Technology — Today's nurses depend on communication tools such as iPads, patient care equipment and software that links to Smart Room Technology, enhancing the nurse's work.
Quality of Care — Nurses manage initiatives that improve patient care quality and safety by achieving accreditation of specialty Centers of Excellence, the use of evidence based practices, and conducting nursing research to build the body of nursing knowledge such as new care strategies for fall prevention, Code Save-A-Heart, Code Save-A-Brain, prevention of infections and skin preservation.
Awards and Recognition — Nurses are recognized for their professional achievements at events and programs such as: the Annual Nursing Awards Ceremony, ASPIRE Clinical Ladder Professional Nurse Advancement event and the DAISY Award.
