Nursing at Jefferson

The Department of Nursing at Jefferson Health - Northeast supports and empowers its nurses in fulfilling the hospital's mission of providing exceptional patient care.

Our nurses are provided with opportunities to learn and grow as a nursing professional and to explore opportunities to support development and wellness. Learning begins in a comprehensive orientation program, in which you are teamed with an experienced nurse, many of whom have been trained in our Preceptor Workshop. Recent graduates participate in our Nurse Residency Program to guide the transition to clinical practice. Our Department of Nursing Education provides additional learning opportunities, including the specialty courses and clinical updates.

Staff nurses are encouraged to continue their professional growth and receive recognition and rewards for their achievements through several different programs, including our Professional Nurse Recognition Program. We celebrate the achievements of our professional nurses, whether they are making valuable contributions in direct patient care, research, community service, in professional development or participation professional organizations.

To support the relationship with our colleagues, our Nursing Shared Governance Councils empower bedside nurses, alongside other nurse professionals, to exercise autonomy and accountability as they address issues related to professional nursing, including clinical policy development, informatics, professional development, retention, recruitment, and the performance improvement process. Our nurses are also members of hospital committees, where collaboration with interdisciplinary health team members occurs to develop evidence based care processes.

Jefferson Health - Northeast, located in Philadelphia and Bucks County, is dedicated to providing a positive environment to practice the art of Nursing. We encourage you to look at the employment opportunities available here and invite you to join our staff of nurses dedicated to the Jefferson Nurse Vision.
