University of Providence Nursing Programs
The mission of the Division of Nursing is to prepare nursing graduates at any level to be leaders of healthcare. Graduates are excellent communicators, clinicians and change agents. A graduate is a lifelong learner who enhances the health of all through excellence in nursing by providing evidence based practice that is population centered, and grounded in spiritual, ethical and compassionate care.
The University nursing programs are designed to meet the needs of nursing caregivers within Providence Health and other health systems passionate about providing innovation in values-based nursing care. Our vision is health for a better world through nursing.
The DAISY Foundation
The DAISY Award honors the super-human work that nurses do for patients and families every day wherever they practice, in whatever role they serve and throughout their careers- from Nursing Students through lifetime achievement.
At the University of Providence, we are committed to honoring nurses with The DAISY Award because we want to recognize the hard work and dedication nurse’s make throughout their careers, beginning with education.
In order to receive The DAISY Award, nurses are nominated by anyone in the organization- parents, family members, other nurses, physicians, other clinicians and staff. If you have witnessed extraordinary, compassionate care being provided by a nurse, do not hesitate to reach out to Janet Houston to nominate.
