Nursing Careers 

Registered Nurse Andrew

North Kansas City Hospital’s ability to provide excellent patient care depends directly on the quality of our nurses, who are leaders, educators and ambassadors in the hospital and in the community. We strive to create a work environment that encourages professional growth; gives our nurses a strong voice in how we develop policies, procedures and processes; and offers work-life balance. We have a three-year nursing strategic plan that guides our journey toward nursing excellence.

We also support our nurses with resources that increase their time at the bedside. Members of our IV team, wound team, and admitting and discharge units work closely with our nurses, offering their help and expertise so our nurses can focus on patient care.

“I love my job for the teamwork, flexibility and variety. From housekeeping to patient care techs to charge nurses to physicians, NKCH really does have a culture of communication and respect. Being PRN gives me the flexibility to meet the needs of my family, and as a member of the float pool, I get to work on several different units and meet new people every day. I've become a better nurse because of the variety, and it's allowed me to challenge myself in diverse environments.”
