Whether you currently are an advance practice nurse or aspire to be one, Providence Health & Services offers a full spectrum of opportunities from which to choose.
Providence offers certified nurse midwives a tremendous variety in practice environments, including hospitals, clinics and birthing centers. Besides assisting women during labor and delivery, certified nurse midwives provide prenatal, postpartum, newborn and routine gynecological care.
Certified registered nurse anesthetists administer and maintain anesthesia during many types of surgeries. They are also responsible for preparing and evaluating patients before and after anesthesia care. Depending on the facility, certified registered nurse anesthetists may collaborate with anesthesiologists.
Patient safety and quality outcomes are important areas of concern for every nurse. The emerging role of the Clinical Nurse Leader is focused primarily on these items, as well as being an integral member of the care delivery team. Clinical Nurse Leaders apply research and evidence based practice into existing plans of care. They are key education resources for patients and their families, as well as fellow nurses and professionals from other disciplines.
At Providence, we rely on professionals in this key leadership role to care for both the patients and their families, serve as a resource and coach for staff nurses, function as an advanced clinical expert, and help us make care delivery improvements to advance excellence. Clinical nurse specialists shape the future at Providence by fostering staff development, introducing best practices, identifying and implementing improvements, and applying clinical expertise to enhance patient care programs.
As one of our nurse practitioners, you'll have the resources and support to maximize your impact. We use a multidisciplinary approach to team care, and we expect you to take a leading role. Because you have your choice of practice settings, such as clinics, hospitals, offices, homes, long term care facilities and hospice, you can grow in an area of specialization or broaden the scope of your practice.
