Excellence in Nursing
Nurses at LewisGale Hospital Pulaski can be proud of working at a hospital who recently received the honor of becoming designated as a Pathway to Excellence® facility by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). LewisGale Hospital Pulaski will now take its place alongside only 131 other U.S. hospitals, which have achieved this distinguished award. This designation confirms to the community and our employees that our healthcare organization is committed to nurses, recognizes what is important to nursing practice, and values nurses’ contributions in the workplace.
Additionally, as a nurse at LewisGale Hospital Montgomery, you become part of a prestigious network of care teams that have achieved the Nursing Magnet Program® designation. Developed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), Magnet is the ultimate credential for professional nursing excellence, earned by only 5 percent of all U.S. hospitals. The Magnet designation means that LewisGale Hospital Montgomery has met the highest standards for transformational leadership; structural empowerment through shared governance; exemplary professional practice; new knowledge, innovations and improvements and empirical outcomes.
Mentoring New Nurses
Through our COMPASS Coaching Program at all LewisGale hospitals, an experienced nurse is paired with each new employee throughout his or her orientation. The specially trained preceptor acts as an educator, socializer and role model, sharing nursing expertise and helping the new staff member become a valued member of the healthcare team. New nursing staff members have the opportunity to continue their professional development through a mentoring experience that includes classroom learning and supervised clinical experiences, which helps our nurses build the confidence and skills needed for future growth and leadership.
