At Lovelace Medical Center, we focus on compassion for our patients, their families, our community and each other. That compassion is a recognition of need and doing something about it; it means action!
We offer professional growth through hospital involvement and educational experiences. This includes connecting with our patients and applying best practices in order to keep them, and our staff, safe while in the hospital.
Lovelace Medical Center has partnered with the University of Iowa to provide a 12-month Entry to Practice (ETP) Nurse Residency Program that supports graduate nurses as they transition into their first professional nursing role. The program offers a 16-week comprehensive orientation plan to the unit assigned, with immersive learning opportunities, nursing professional development, quality and safety performance improvement integration, and a supportive team-oriented environment for the remainder of the program. We have opportunities in Med/Surg, Intermediate Care, PCU, Otho/Surgical/Spine and Neuro/Step Down.
So whether you are a new RN, just entering through a residency program, or a nurse with many years of experience, my job is to provide you with the tools and resources that you need to provide exceptional, high-quality care to patients and their families.
Lovelace Medical Center is the best place to care and be cared for!
