Professional Development

At Excela Health, experienced and graduate nurses begin with a robust orientation that includes four days of classroom orientation, followed by an individualized, preceptor-guided clinical orientation. Graduate nurses are provided additional support through the Nurse Residency Program.

Ongoing professional development activities include live in-services, computer-based learning, simulation labs, competency development, mentoring and coaching. Many education programs enable the nurse to attain continuing education (CE) credits required for state licensure. Opportunities are available to participate in professional development activities to enhance knowledge and skills as a professional, a clinician and a leader. Lifelong learning is an important component of one’s nursing career and the Excela Health Nursing Education Department provides many avenues for nurses to participate in education programming designed to support growth and development.

Many nurses elect to pursue certification in their area of expertise. Certification validates that the nurse has demonstrated experience and knowledge in their area. The benefits of nursing certification are far wide, from personal development to patients/families. Certification raises the standard in nursing practice and at Excela Health, we can help the nurse achieve it.
