On behalf of the nurses at Rush Copley Medical Center, we are pleased and honored to serve your healthcare needs.  Nurses at Rush Copley greatly contribute to your ability to achieve your healthcare goals.  The administration of Rush Copley values nurses as the key to excellent patient care.  Nurse have all the tools needed to care for your and your family.  In addition, they are given the opportunity to further their education and career, advancing knowledge through formal degree programs at the bachelor's and master's level as well as earning specialty certifications for the areas they work in.  There are endless opportunities for nurses at Rush Copley to grow and excel.  This means the best possible care for you.

Part of our professional growth was the development Nursing Executive Council.  Bedside nurses are called upon to participate collaboratively to find solutions to issues and problems that we face at the point of care.  They come together to work on these solutions to provide you with the best possible care.  This translates to decision making by nurses on your behalf.  Rush Copley facilitates advocating for you and building a strong relationship with you.
