We offer our nurses opportunities across the continuum of service delivery and patient age span in an academic health sciences centre. We strive to deliver patient-centeredness, evidence-based practice and innovation at the heart of everything we do.
Nurses at Health Science North have long been recognized for their professionalism and contribution to the exceptional quality of patient care. Our academic setting strives to fully engage nurses during the formative and mature phases of their professional career.
This reputation for excellence in nursing is a result of the ongoing dedication and support of, not only the hospital's nursing leadership, but also of the Board of Directors, medical staff, senior leadership and non-clinical staff.
Nursing is part of the Inter-professional Care Model under the leadership of Dr. David McNeil, Ph.D, Vice President Patient Services, Clinical Transformation and Chief Nursing Executive. One of the highlights of nursing at HSN is our patient-centered approach to caring for patients and families. Our professional practice model puts patients first and provides a foundation for excellence in patient care, research and education. This collaborative practice model recognizes the contribution of professionals from all disciplines to patient outcomes. It is a model of care delivery that allows all professionals to make a difference in the lives of patients and their families.
Our nurses and inter-professional teams are supported by a strong leadership team consisting of Managers, Clinical Leaders, Directors, Nurse Clinicians and Advanced Practice Nurses.
