Nursing leadership is composed of a Chief Nursing Officer along with several Vice Presidents who are nurses. These leaders work in partnership
with physicians to lead Gundersen in a way that best meets the needs of our patients.
In our patient-centered environment
, we place value on a competent, compassionate and specialized practice. We offer nursing fellowships in education, research and evidence-based practice. We also offer peer review, preceptors, mentors and our own nursing newsletters, written by nurses, for nurses. From nursing forums and education days to Nursing Grand Rounds, the core of Gundersen nursing is knowledge.
The role of the nurse at Gundersen is dynamic
, changing to meet the challenges of healthcare and to best meet the needs of nurses. It is our goal to have the right nurse doing the right work
