Nursing at Aria
The Department of Nursing at Aria Health supports its nurses in fulfilling the hospital's mission of providing exceptional patient care.
A variety of opportunities to learn and grow as a nursing professional are provided. 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. Our Staff Development Department provides additional learning opportunities, including the Med-Surg Update, Critical Care Course and Trauma Updates, to name a few. BCLS, ACLS and computer documentation classes are also provided. Leadership workshops are offered to develop skills the nurse may utilize in roles at and beyond the bedside.
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 at Aria, whether they are making valuable contributions in direct patient care, research, community service or in their professional organizations (news and notes).
Our Clinical 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. Nurses are also members of hospital committees, in which they collaborate with health team members from other disciplines.
Aria Health, located in Philadelphia, 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 excellent patient care and positive patient outcomes.
