At Eisenhower Medical Center we believe that professional development should continue throughout a nursing career. Our Nursing Education Program provides ongoing support for our nurses at every stage of their careers. A Clinical Educator is assigned to each specialty area within the hospital. We offer a variety of continuing education programs including a monthly Nursing Grand Rounds series, independent study and on-line courses, skills labs, workshops and conferences. Many classes are offered free of charge, and there is generous tuition reimbursement for nurses enrolled in degree programs. Several times a year we invite a nationally known speaker to our campus.
In 2009, Eisenhower Medical Center began a journey toward MagnetTM certification through the Magnet Recognition Program®. With the goal of Magnet recognition, Eisenhower advances into new and exciting territory. Already, Eisenhower nurses are distinguished in their practice but we're ready to raise the bar and take the necessary steps to become Eisenhower Magnet nurses - a continuous journey that pursues excellence at every opportunity.
The Essence of Nursing
Eisenhower Medical Center has a long tradition of nursing excellence. Based on a practice of safety, clinical excellence and compassionate care, Eisenhower nurses deliver nursing care from their hearts, their experience and their expertise.
Nursing is a unique profession — balancing clinical knowledge with human dignity; social work with pragmatism; and family dynamics with a clear mind. The demands of nursing are profound but the rewards of affecting, changing or saving a patient’s life are equally transforming. Eisenhower nurses work incredibly hard to the find balance in each unique situation.
The ultimate goal of Eisenhower’s nursing excellence is to achieve optimal patient outcomes through accountability, responsibility, collaboration and the professional development of each nurse. Supported by this framework, caring for our patients will continue to be a privilege.
