As knowledge workers, we recognize our responsibility to remain continuously engaged in our own professional development. We are lifelong learners and our commitment to this promise is operational in many ways.
Each nurse’s professional development begins with a comprehensive orientation process. The didactic and clinical components of this process are designed to assume the successful integration of each nurse into our organization.
We respond to our employees’ continuing educational needs with generous educational support and tuition reimbursement. Our clinical nurses manage their continuing education budget.
We host a national conference at the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center in Madison on a biyearly basis, as well as a variety of other educational programs.
Professional certification is highly valued and supported.On achievement of certification in a nursing specialty, our nurses are reimbursed for the certification fee.
Our team of exceptional clinical nurse specialists supports the development of our nurses and our practice.
Our national recognition for nursing excellence has placed our nursing members in high demand to share their work. Our nurses publish in professional journals, present at national conference and share our work through consultation.
We offer countless opportunities for nurses to learn new skills and use their talents. Becoming a charge nurse, transferring to a new specialty area, or becoming a member of one of our Shared Governance Councils are several examples.
