At Inova we have a talented, diverse and professional nursing community. Nursing aligns to the greater Inova mission, vision and values, endeavoring to provide world-class healthcare, every time, every touch—to each person in every community we have the privilege to serve. We strive for excellence in the care we provide our patients. But we also strive for excellence in our own professional development. Inova is proud to offer employment, educational and career development opportunities specifically for our nurses.
Inova nurses are the most trusted nurses in the nation.
Inova provides a Nurse Residency Program for all new graduate nurses starting their career. This 1-year program, meeting monthly for four hours in a cohort setting, provides for educational and emotional support as new graduate nurses transition from being a student to the role of the professional nurse. The monthly meetings provide a safe environment for the necessary learning and transitions, focusing on time management, communication, dealing with stress, conflict management, as well as working with complex clinical scenarios. The residency also provide additional training in evidence-based nursing practice and provides an opportunity for learners to apply the principles of EBP to unit-based issues and provide solutions to real-time identified problems.
Inova is committed to attracting and retaining the most talented and skilled nurses, and to ensuring our nurses have robust professional development opportunities. Inova is grateful to our donors for their generous support in funding many of the scholarships and awards highlighted here. Philanthropic gifts allow us to support our nurses as they seek to advance their skills, further their education and provide personal and highly skilled care to all of our patients. To all of our nursing donors we say, “Thank You!”
