Professional Development and Recognition

There are many opportunities to grow in your career at WDH!

  • Our Professional Recognition Program is a career ladder designed for clinical nurses that allows them to grow and advance in their profession without having to leave the bedside. You can continue doing what you love – establishing relationships with and caring for patients – and your expertise will be recognized, professionally and financially.
  • Our nurses are encouraged to validate their expertise through board certification in their chosen specialty. We’ll provide resources to help you achieve this goal.
  • Our Nursing Education, Research, and Innovation (NERI) department is here to support you as you explore educational, academic, mentorship, and career opportunities.
  • NERI does offer considerable support/resources to nurses returning to the workforce and those new to acute care. We truly provide individualized orientation programs whether you are a new grad or a nurse of 30 years, regardless of your background.

"The new grad program offered me support greater than I could ever have imagined. The integration of classroom, Simulation training, and preceptor time in the residency program allowed me to smoothly transition from four years of school to professional practice."
