Richmond University Medical Center offers a tradition of outstanding nursing care in a close-knit, caring community. Our values define both our foundation and our future. Simply stated, WE CARE – Welcoming, Energized, Compassionate, Advocacy, Respect and Excellence characterize our every interaction, whether it is with our patients or among fellow practitioners and team members. Human dignity is preserved. Concern for one another is demonstrated, and people take ownership. And there’s a common drive to provide excellence in everything we do, whether it is delivering exceptional, quality-driven nursing care or providing outstanding customer service.
Nursing in Behavioral Health
Nurses in our Behavioral Health areas serve children, adolescents, adults and their families through both inpatient and outpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment services.
Continuing Education and Career Development
RUMC is committed to nurturing its nurses and providing them with the means to acquire advanced skills and knowledge so we can continue to deliver the highest quality care. We offer ongoing support and orientation for new nurses throughout their first year, and as we are strongly committed to developing the best possible nursing clinicians, ongoing learning is an integral part of our culture. We provide a complete range of ongoing in-service and continuing education programs. This enables every nurse to acclimate smoothly, acquire or enhance knowledge, pursue new experiences, develop clinical competencies and prepare for inevitable changes in the profession and particular specialties.
