Our Tenets: The Providence Nurse
Together with our 48,000 nurses we are defining what it means to be a Providence nurse.
Fellowships and Residencies for All
We believe that all nurses should have access to a residency program when transitioning into practice and to a fellowship program when transitioning into specialty. We offer an accredited evidence-based residency program to all newly graduated nurses who choose to practice at Providence.
As nurses we understand the importance of life-long learning and encourage continuous professional development. We support you in each stage of your career, from residency or practice to specialty or fellowship to management and leadership roles.
Explore development opportunities.
Advanced practice is vital to our mission of Health for a Better World. At Providence, we value the contributions of advanced practice registered nurses, nurse midwives, certified registered nurse anesthetists, clinical nurse specialists and physician assistants.
Providence nurses strive to make every encounter sacred. We approach every interaction with compassion, taking the time to know our patients and easing their way through the healing process.
We believe that all nurses should have an opportunity to influence their practice. We support and promote a shared leadership structure that gives nurses a voice on their practice.
We are an inclusive workforce that champions diversity of thought, experience, culture and beliefs. We cherish our core values of compassion, dignity, justice and integrity. For example, bullying is a pervasive issue that has been observed in nursing schools and in practice settings. It is destructive to nurses and organizations. At Providence, we do not tolerate bullying behaviors, condescending attitudes, destructive resentments or backstabbing.
