Starting your nursing career off right

We understand that choosing where to gain your first full-time nursing experience is an important decision for you. We hope that you'll consider gaining your first full-time experience in our med-surg units.

Beginning your nursing career in the medical-surgical environment supports your transition from nursing student to professional nurse by giving you the experience you need. You will enhance your existing clinical abilities, time management and professional development while gaining confidence in the skills you learned in your classes and clinicals.

We also support our nurses with their long-term career goals and professional development. If your long-term goal is to work in a specialty nursing area, you may participate in Ballad Health-sponsored specialty education while completing your commitment in the medical-surgical role. You can do this by attending courses in addition to your scheduled work in preparation for future opportunities at Ballad Health.

Ballad Health also offers several programs and resources for our team members, including support for continued education, certification opportunities and organizational development.
