Welcome from our Chief Nursing Officer
Professional Nursing at Presbyterian embodies the best of our past and the
brightest of our future.Today we stand proudly on a foundation built by nurses for over
100 years, and we look to the future with great anticipation. From the very beginning, our
organization has been focused on helping the people of New Mexico. We have
carried this tradition since our beginning as a four-room cottage throughout
our growth into the largest healthcare organization in the state with eight hospitals,
over 40 outpatient clinics, a health plan, and some 3,000 nurses statewide.
The geography in New Mexico
is as unique as Presbyterian – each providing a diverse and exciting variety of
opportunities. Our land is rich with culture and history, as well as booming
industry and growth opportunities (not to mention great food, fantastic people
and beautiful landscapes). From large urban settings to small rural facilities,
Presbyterian offers a wide variety of practice venues for nursing. Our nurses
practice in hospitals, ambulatory care sites, patient homes, and through
telemedicine links over the internet. We offer a variety of specialties,
programs and practice settings for graduate nurses, RNs, LPNs, nurse mid-wives,
clinical nurse specialists, and nurse practitioners.
Presbyterian has invested
heavily in technology and automation, giving our nurses access to the most
advanced electronic systems to allow them to excel in caring for their
patients. Through committed pursuit of national excellence, Magnet status, and
an environment focused on quality, teamwork, and rewarding educational and
professional development opportunities, Presbyterian is dedicated to ensuring
that you have the best possible healthcare system in which to practice – today,
and into the next 100 years.
I encourage you to explore the rich opportunities at Presbyterian.
