About Us

Practice with Heart

Providence nurses strive to make every encounter sacred because they see you, they take the time to know you and they ease your way. They lead, inspire and place their patients first, providing world-class whole-person care.

Our Tenets: The Providence Nurse

Together with our 48,000 nurses we are defining what it means to be a Providence nurse.

CollaborationFellowships and Residencies for All

We believe that all nurses should have access to a residency program when transitioning into practice and to a fellowship program when transitioning into specialty. We offer an accredited evidence-based residency program to all newly graduated nurses who choose to practice at Providence.

As nurses we understand the importance of life-long learning and encourage continuous professional development. We support you in each stage of your career, from residency or practice to specialty or fellowship to management and leadership roles. Explore development opportunities.

Personal growthAdvanced Practice

Advanced practice is vital to our mission of Health for a Better World. At Providence, we value the contributions of advanced practice registered nurses, nurse midwives, certified registered nurse anesthetists, clinical nurse specialists and physician assistants. 

Hands holding communityCompassionate Care

Providence nurses strive to make every encounter sacred. We approach every interaction with compassion, taking the time to know our patients and easing their way through the healing process.

People talkingEngagement

We believe that all nurses should have an opportunity to influence their practice. We support and promote a shared leadership structure that gives nurses a voice on their practice.

Holding handsInclusive Care

We are an inclusive workforce that champions diversity of thought, experience, culture and beliefs. We cherish our core values of compassion, dignity, justice and integrity. For example, bullying is a pervasive issue that has been observed in nursing schools and in practice settings. It is destructive to nurses and organizations. At Providence, we do not tolerate bullying behaviors, condescending attitudes, destructive resentments or backstabbing. 

Meet Our Team

“As I think about our future, I consider the importance of civility, of life-long learning, the prerogative of independent nursing practice and self-governance, and supporting nurses who transition into practice or specialty. Together, we will reinforce these tenets. Together, we will define what it means to be a Providence nurse. Together, we will ensure Health for a Better World.”

- Syl Trepanier, Senior Vice President, Chief Nursing Officer

Providence Nursing is led by a system-level Nursing Leadership Council (NLC) that uses a shared governance model to ensure that every care location is treated equally, and the voice of every nurse is represented and heard.

Life-Long Learning

Amplify your Impact

At Providence, we are steadfast in staging the best possible experience for the patients we serve and the exceptional nurses who provide their care. We do this by focusing on four critical areas: fellowships and residencies, professional development, research and nursing excellence (accreditation).

The Clinical Academy

Providing a pathway to nurse residency and fellowship, the Clinical Academy is a nationally accredited, evidence–based program that places new RN and nurse practitioner graduates directly into specialty positions through a year-long standard program.

Providence nursing leaders from across our family of organizations recognize that to deliver world-class care, we must provide new graduate nurses with a foundation for success. Whether you are a new graduate nurse or a nurse in transition, we can empower you to become a transformational leader through an integrated, consistent structure for mentoring, nurse onboarding and professional development.
