The Nursing and Patient Care Center of Excellence serves all nurses and promotes inter-professional activities. In the Center, you will find nurse leaders that seek excellence in patient care and work to provide professional development opportunities that advance, cultivate, and inspire exceptional practice quality.
These nursing professional development programs focus on key elements of professional development: scholarly activity, exemplary practice and innovation:
St. Luke's is proud to support nurses in seeking career advancement. We offer career consultation services, support in achieving specialty certification, and guidance in completing nursing scholarly (or capstone) projects. With advanced nursing degrees available within Idaho, students have local access to academic opportunities, as well as precepting and mentoring from Nursing and Patient Care Center of Excellence leaders.
Our nurses may also apply for funds to help defray the costs of certain professional development activities such as attending a professional conference, conducting a small research project, or purchasing a book or other item related to professional development.
