We strive to make every encounter sacred. This is core to our mission and why we seek to inspire the highest potential of every Providence nurse.

Life-Long Learning

We are 100% committed to life-long learning, development and advancement. This is just one way we help nurses deliver whole-person patient care.

Where We Serve

We are steadfast in advancing nursing practices equally across the seven states and full range of care delivery types we serve.

Striving to Make Every Encounter Sacred

With every life we touch, we affect more than one individual, strengthening our communities and making the future brighter. Our work creates a better, healthier world for all people, especially those who are poor and vulnerable.



We care for each other just as we do for our patients. Providence strives to create fulfilling work environments that make every nurse feel valued, heard and included.

Climbing ladder


We are committed to empowering your calling as a nurse. We offer fellowships and residency for all with everyday support on the most advanced technology and resources.

Hands holding community


Nurses at Providence are leaders who transform every encounter into a sacred relationship. We see your value, help you transform care and strive to amplify your impact.

In a typical day, I’ll work on a local project with the regional team followed by a call that includes colleagues from all over the system. Everyone is generous and works together to accomplish a shared goal.

– John Elliot, nurse educator leader

Providence is the first organization [where] I have worked that focuses on supporting the wellbeing and development our nursing caregivers. Providence treats caregivers as their greatest investment.

– Naydu Lucas, DNP, MBA, MSN, RN, chief nursing officer

I joined the residency because being a new nurse is hard to prepare for and is more than taking vitals and doing the tasks you learn in school. In the first year of working, having a preceptor is wonderful – especially for asking questions in the moment.
