A registered nurse in the hospital or clinic setting is a critical member of our patient operations team at St. Luke’s. Nurses assess patient needs, develop and implement nursing care plans, maintain medical records, and provide information and education to patients, their families and other healthcare team members.
What makes a good nurse?
Registered nurses should have the following traits:
- A good team member
- Strong communication skills
- Detail oriented
- Not afraid to ask questions
Are there growth opportunities for nurses?
Yes. You can work in a hospital, clinic, long-term care facility and nursing home among many other opportunities. You can also go back to school to expand your knowledge of the healthcare field to become a staff educator, nurse practitioner, nurse anesthetist, physician or more.
How do I become a registered nurse?
There are local programs that offer an Associate or Bachelor degree in nursing to prepare you for your licensing exam. You are required to be licensed in Minnesota as a registered nurse in order to work at St. Luke’s Hospital or Lake View Hospital.
