Nursing is the backbone of the superior care provided 24 hours a day, seven days a week at NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore). Our longstanding tradition of excellence is supported by a legacy of talented, compassionate nurses who have always shown a true commitment to professional and empathetic care.

A leader in advanced nursing, NorthShore demands professional accountability and real collaborative care where nurses are empowered to play a significant role in patient care plans and enhanced outcomes. NorthShore nurses are focused on the entire continuum of care and dedicated to a holistic approach of treating patients and their families.

NorthShore's leadership has long supported professional growth and continued learning opportunities in a culture of evidence-based nursing practice. Nurses are a valued voice at all levels of administration and play an essential part in our ongoing goals to provide the best possible care to those we are privileged to serve.

NorthShore University HealthSystem was redesignated as a Magnet organization in 2015 by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program®. This prestigious designation recognizes excellence in nursing services.

Shared-Decision Making

The status quo is never acceptable and NorthShore nurses understand that our shared-decision making model enables everyone to make a measurable difference in the way we care for individual patients. Our nurses are increasingly involved with sophisticated technology and  innovative research all designed to improve patient care.

NorthShore nurses play leadership roles in many clinical and professional organizations and represent the organization at educational conferences and numerous community venues. Our nurses give back, sharing their compassion and expertise in volunteer activities across the globe. From caring for impoverished women and children in Africa and Central America, to helping to train colleagues in resource-challenged institutions in China, NorthShore nurses put their passion to practice throughout our hospitals, physician offices, home care and well beyond.
