Participants may also be eligible to work a third year and receive an additional 25 percent of the qualifying NELRP balance.

    Tuition Reimbursement
    Northwest Hospital & Medical Center encourages employees to develop and expand professional skill sets that benefit both the employee and the hospital. Staff members employed for six months or longer who meet the requirements of FTE status and performance appraisal are eligible to apply.

    Continuing Education
    Northwest Hospital & Medical Center offers regular and ongoing continuing education programs to all employees to create an environment that stimulates learning, creativity and personal satisfaction.

    Professional Education Leave
    Nurses may be allowed up to forty-eight (48) hours of paid professional education leave per year.

    Leadership Education
    We are committed to retaining top talent and to assisting employees as they grow and develop in their career paths and offer a variety of leadership development classes on the Northwest Hospital campus.

    Community Health Education & Simulation Center
    Northwest Hospital & Medical Center employees now have the advantage of hands- on training in our Community Health Education & Simulation Center.

    The Simulation Center meets a wide variety of staffing needs, including:

    • Training and retention to help reduce the current critical shortage of health practitioners
    • Ongoing staff certification
    • Ensuring patient safety and helping reduce medical errors

    The Simulation Center provides staff with an opportunity to test their clinical and decision-making skills while "treating" a wide variety of health conditions on high-tech computerized simulators that are much more than mannequins: They breathe, cough, and cry. Their skin can be cut by scalpels and their veins injected with medications. In addition, task trainers that represent particular anatomical systems help participants learn specific procedures, such as the placement of ventilator tubes and intravenous lines. Simulation models include adults, children and a pregnant female and her infant.
