Providing innovative, high-quality nursing care is the fundamental cornerstone of our nursing practice. Through working collaboratively with physicians and various departments throughout our hospital, our nursing care unit is helping change and transform the way patient care is designed and delivered.
The delivery of nursing care occurs within an interdisciplinary clinical case management framework that provides a professional, collaborative, and collegial team approach with role differentiation and evidence-based nursing practice. Nurses at all levels of our organization provide strong and knowledgeable leadership, are visible, inspire others, and support professional nursing practice.
Magnet Hospital for Excellence in Nursing Practice
In 2003 Columbus Regional Hospital was named Indiana's first Magnet Hospital for Nursing Excellence and in 2008 we were the first to be re-designated. The accreditation is awarded by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and recognizes excellence in nursing practice and nursing care.
Continuing Nursing Education (CNE)
Continuing education is an integral part of professional nursing development, increasing the nurse's skills and knowledge to stay abreast of changing knowledge and technology. At Columbus Regional Hospital we offer an evidence-based, comprehensive Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) program to assist our nursing in advancing their practice and careers.
