Our department of nursing at Huntington Hospital is comprised of registered nurses, clinical nurse specialists, nurse practitioners, licensed practical nurses, licensed technicians, patient care assistants and unit secretaries. This talented group of healthcare providers practice on more than 20 specialty-based nursing units including three critical care units.
We continuously seek to develop, challenge and mentor nurses through the advancement of their practice and encourage strong partnerships. These solid and strong partnerships allowed the hospital to successfully pursue Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) in 2011, and be re-designated in 2015. In addition, Huntington Hospital nurses take pride in being part of a Joint Commission certified orthopedic center of excellence as well as a certified comprehensive stroke center.
Our diverse and dynamic team of nurses is supported by a strong group of nurse leaders who encourage professional growth and foster a healthy work environment. We deliver excellent care through interdisciplinary and leadership collaboration, promoting a safe, positive, knowledgeable, creative and trusting practice environment. As vital members of the interdisciplinary team, RNs are responsible for effectively communicating information related to patient care.
