Nursing At Trinitas
Every nurse learned in school that COLLABORATION is the key to effective nursing care. At Trinitas Regional Medical Center they demonstrate that belief everyday. Numerous activities to improve patient care start with an idea from the staff nurse, and with the help of a supportive collaborative team approach, the idea can become a reality.

Numerous opportunities abound at Trinitas Regional Medical Center for nurses to collaborate on small and large projects to both improve patient care and to develop a safer and more satisfying work environment. New graduate RNs are welcomed to the organization and to their new team members through the BRIDGE* program. This program, developed in collaboration with the Nursing, Education and Human Resources Departments, is designed to ease the transition from Graduate to Registered Nurse, through structured classroom and clinical orientations, utilizing the nursing expertise of advanced practice nurses and clinically expert preceptors. Student nurses can enhance their relationships with the hospital by participating in the summer externship program. Faculty from the School of Nursing work closely with the externs as they improve their time management and prioritization skills while providing valuable care to their patients. [* The Trinitas Bridge Program is currently in transition. Look for more information soon about the exciting changes ahead here on the website.]

From Emergency Department nurses collaborating with Cardiac Catheterization and Critical Care nurses to establish nursing care protocols for a newly implemented Emergency Angioplasty program to team building with Case Management nurses to facilitate a smoother transition from hospital to home, Trinitas Regional Medical Center nurses know the value of working together to achieve a common goal - excellent patient care in a supportive environment which facilitates professional growth. But it doesn't stop there. Most important of all collaboration is the building of professional relationships amongst nurses and other disciplines in the organization. For example, as a Catholic healthcare institution sponsored by the Sisters of Charity, the spiritual aspect of patient care is enhanced with the significant interaction between nurses and the Pastoral Care Staff who are available to assist in daily patient care, as well as helping the staff, patient and families with difficult treatment decisions.

Although geography may separate hospital campuses and sites, all nursing care at Trinitas Regional Medical Center is rendered with compassion and concern for the communities we serve.
