Welcome to the Erlanger Health System Nursing page.
Nursing at Erlanger has never been stronger. We stand proud on a foundation of more than 100 years of nursing excellence. We base all our procedures and protocols on evidence-based best practices for all our patients and deliver care with an attitude of service and compassion.
A team of more than 1,600 highly talented, professional nurses provides care 24/7 to highly complex patients. Our patients range from pediatric to geriatric, medical to surgical, OB to trauma (and everything in between). Career opportunities in teaching, research, and administration/management abound at Erlanger since most specialty areas are represented.
Erlanger nurses enjoy multiple avenues for professional development and learning. On a daily basis, they use state-of-the-art technology and have the opportunity to increase their clinical knowledge through the many clinical trials and research projects happening here. We are on the journey toward magnet status and encourage our nurses to be involved in our shared governance system through participation in a unique council structure, as well as community outreach activities.
Thank you for visiting, and we appreciate your interest in nursing at Erlanger.
NURSES' WEEK 2013
Nurses' Week 2013 is fast approaching! Each year this special week offers the opportunity to say "thank you" and to recognize the dedication, commitment and leadership of our talented nursing team in the Erlanger Health System. Erlanger nurses strive every day to provide nursing excellence and promote professional nursing, utilizing best practice in the exceptional care provided to our patients and community.

We are kicking things off a little early by opening nominations for one of the week's most important activities, the selection of our 2013 Nurse of Excellence. I invite you to help celebrate nursing at Erlanger by taking the time to tell us about the wonderful nurses you work with every day.
