Carle Foundation Hospital and Carle BroMenn Medical Center hold Magnet® designation, the nation’s highest honor for nursing care granted by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).
Nearly 3,000 nurses practice in a variety of settings from inpatient to ambulatory to our health plan. Each is supported by transformational leaders who give them autonomy to find solutions, integrate with their care teams, pursue research and grow their careers.The positive work environment elevates our world-class patient care and creates positive outcomes.
We encourage our nurses to grow their career through training and education by providing pre-paid tuition assistance. We also have a Clinical Nursing Ladder, a voluntary advancement program that recognizes and rewards nurses for their professional contributions. Carle also provides numerous leadership and engagement opportunities giving nurses the chance to grow and contribute.
Each year, Carle presents the Nurse Exemplar and Friends of Nursing program, a peer recognition program that celebrates nurses who demonstrate expertise, professionalism, mentoring, community service and passion.
Nurses at Carle Health place patients, their families and our community at the center of their decisions. That is the basis of their professional practice model. Our team of nurses exemplify compassion and create the safest environment for the best possible patient health outcomes.
