Nurses are encouraged and supported to develop professionally. SHC has a mentored new graduate nurse program patterned on the UHC model and we have a shared leadership council focused on augmenting professional growth and development.
Furthermore, we maintain strong academic partnerships, are involved in community outreach programs, and we have a clinical ladder program which challenges nurses to strive to continually advance their professional nursing practice.
Additionally, nurses are supported throughout their careers via our dynamic mentorship program, Friends of Nursing (FON) grants and scholarships, monthly Nursing Grand Rounds (NGR) for both inpatient and ambulatory care, the Leadership and Management Academy (LAMA), and a multitude of support systems and opportunities for professional growth and development.
Nurses are even encouraged to join Sigma Theta Tau’s first ever practice-only chapter through Stanford!
