Nursing at Almoosa

Driven by our overarching hospital strategic priorities, we have embarked on an ambitious, solid, and comprehensive nursing strategic plan based on the components of the Magnet model. One of the major milestones in the history of the growth of our department has been the transformation of our organizational structure by introducing two main components, which are the introduction of our three new clinical nurse specialists and the development of the nursing quality and safety division.

 

Our nurses are empowered, and equipped with knowledge, skills, and resources. We continuously welcome hundreds of new nurses through our accredited transition-to-practice program (PTAP®) by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). We have elevated the entry level of nursing to BSN level to 87% because we believe that the higher the nurses’ education, the better outcomes for our patients. Our INSPIRE program has graduated dozens of nurses and our recognition program has honored hundreds of DAISY® nurses and caregivers.
