At University Hospitals, nurses have always been our front-line caregivers. Every day, they care for patients of all ages – from newborns to seniors – expertly blending compassion with advanced knowledge, technical skills and professional integrity.
We recognize the invaluable role played by our nurses and strive to develop and expand the role they play as part of the health care team, and to provide them with opportunities to grow their careers through continuing professional development opportunities (CNE). And, we also support and nurture the next generation of nurses through our collaborations with local nursing schools.
University Hospitals’ commitment to nursing excellence is ongoing. Two of our larger hospitals – UH Cleveland Medical Center and UH Portage Medical Center – hold Magnet designations from the American Nursing Credentialing Center – the highest distinction a health care organization can receive for nursing excellence and high-quality patient care. For our nurses, this recognition means education and development through every stage of their career, leading to greater autonomy at the bedside.
