    Nursing Excellence Initiative

    Recognizing the importance of nursing to the overall success of Abbott Northwestern Hospital and patient outcomes, the Abbott Northwestern Hospital Foundation has initiated a multi-year, multi-million dollar effort to ensure that the high quality nursing care that currently exists continues.

    The Nursing Excellence Initiative raises funds for the education, recruitment and retention of nurses, including supporting specialized training, certifications, evidence-based practice experiences, conferences, research fellowships, and baccalaureate or higher degree completion.

    Through ongoing education nurses will enhance their clinical expertise as well as develop the competencies, knowledge and leadership skills needed for today’s complex and dynamic healthcare environment. We invite you to watch the video to learn more and understand why a gift in support of the Nursing Excellence Initiative is a thoughtful investment of your dollars. Make your gift today.
