Norton Healthcare Institute for Nursing

The Norton Healthcare Institute for Nursing was born out of a committee established by Tracy E. Williams, DNP, R.N., senior vice president and system chief nursing officer, in 2008. Its purpose is to centralize nursing core orientation across the Norton Healthcare system. The Institute for Nursing concept is to be the formative structure for professional growth of Norton Healthcare’s nurses.

Research at the Institute for Nursing

The Norton Healthcare Institute for Nursing led an effort to implement a research mentor model for nursing. Jill Berger, R.N., spearheaded the effort to establish a framework and support system for nursing research in all Norton Healthcare hospitals and to generate clinical nursing studies conducted by direct care nurses.

Outreach at the Institute for Nursing

The institute’s Center for Nursing Outreach collaborates with regional hospitals to promote nursing education within all facilities, to assist in providing online educational courses in a variety of settings and to encourage nurses from the broader community to participate in Norton Healthcare’s excellent educational opportunities.

The Norton Healthcare Institute for Nursing also seeks to improve the quality of patient care by looking beyond the walls of our hospitals for opportunities to promote health and wellness in our community.
