Nursing Excellence

Called to Care

Nurses are vital and valued members of Sanford’s health care team, providing care to millions of patients each year at medical centers and clinic locations across our footprint.

As vital members of the health care team, Sanford nurses place the patient and family at the center of care, partnering with them to provide care that meets their unique needs. Nurses often say they feel called to help others in this special way, and Sanford nurses are called to go even further.

We are committed to professional growth and effective communication. We are encouraged to use our voice and the latest evidence and research to lead patient care improvements, provide culturally sensitive care, and improve the patient experience.
