Continuous Learning and Professional Development

Meeting the coming challenges in healthcare delivery will require a firm commitment to lifelong learning. The continuing pursuit of knowledge is now critical to achieving high-quality outcomes in the complex environments where nurses practice.

Montefiore cultivates an atmosphere of continuous learning, where nurses are offered ample and ongoing opportunities to educate themselves about ways to maximize patient care, innovation and cutting-edge developments in healthcare.

Education Programs and Other Mechanisms for Advancement

Our robust professional development, education programs and initiatives are available to all of our nurses—from the newly minted to the well-established. Montefiore’s practices and programs include:

Building Nursing Leadership from Within

Montefiore’s Nursing Visiting Scholars Program brings national and international leaders to share their vision with our staff. The program addresses core aspects of the profession, including nurse-led innovations in healthcare, transcultural nursing, translational nursing research and the future of nursing as outlined in a recent Institute of Medicine report.  We look forward to further hosting and partnering with nursing leaders—an invaluable opportunity as we advance the future of nursing and healthcare.
