At JPS Health Network, our nursing team brings years of experience to caring for patients. As a teaching hospital and Level I Trauma Center, nurses benefit from a learning environment that continues to advance their skills through evidence-based practice and professional development.

The Nursing Professional Development Program is designed to promote an environment where the leadership, art and science of nursing flourishes; nursing standards are clear; and nurses feel valued and respected. The program is designed to progressively move nurses to greater accountability for professional practice and complex patient care. This is a competency-based differentiated practice model intended to focus the nursing workforce toward meaningful growth in the profession.
