Acute Care Nurse Requirements

Our nursing leadership is dedicated to the advancement of the nursing profession and have committed to developing a nursing workforce educated with a bachelor’s degree or higher in nursing. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to our patients. Employing registered nurses with a BSN contributes significantly to our patients’ care:

  • Research indicates that patients experience decreased mortality, improved quality outcomes and reduced adverse events when cared for by registered nurses with a BSN, and
  • As patient care becomes more complex, there is growing evidence that developing a more highly educated workforce improves patient safety and leads to higher-quality, more cost effective patient care.

Many Swedish facilities have resources in place to assist registered nurses with advancing their education. You can verify with your recruiter during the hiring process what resources are offered to help support your schooling as programs vary by location.

Swedish partners with universities in the region, should you choose to attend classes. Your clinical manager will work closely with you to ensure you are able to attend on your clinical day throughout the program.
