Committed to Nursing Excellence
There is no better place or time to be a nurse than at Rush Copley. Our nursing team is committed to providing extraordinary care to patients and families as well as an outstanding work environment that enriches nurses personally and professionally.
At Rush Copley, nurses at all levels have the opportunity for involvement and a voice in decision making. We are recognized as leaders in patient care and work collaboratively with our inter professional teams to provide safe, effective and compassionate care.
Rush Copley’s Nursing Vision 2020 and Nursing Strategic Plan are ambitious. They ensure our work is relevant and responsive to our patients, our community and our organization’s needs, while providing a consistent focus for nursing practice. We aspire to achieve Magnet designation from the American Nurse Credentialing Center (ANCC) to showcase Rush Copley's nursing excellence and quality patient care. The Magnet credential is the highest and most prestigious recognition for nursing and when achieved will place us among an elite rank and gives credence to the many awards and honors we have already achieved.
