Working in a hospital is all about extremes. A miracle unfolds down the hall from a tragedy. A life is saved within minutes of a life lost. Nurses with the Ascension Seton are part of this amazing rollercoaster every day on the job. And they wouldn’t have it any other way.

If you are looking for an innovative work environment where you can flourish, are valued and have professional satisfaction, then Ascension Seton is the place for you.

Quality and Compassionate Care

One of our hospitals have Magnet® designation and two hospitals have Pathway to Excellence® designation for excellence in nursing services. In addition, two hospitals are currently on the Magnet journey and one hospital on the Pathway to Excellence journey.  We have a passion for excellent patient care with a focus on providing quality, compassionate care in an academic environment through shared governance, evidence-based practice, advanced education, interdisciplinary collaboration and research.

Our professional practice model is Relationship-Based Care. It is also the essence of how we partner with our patients, families, health care team members and support each other.

Nurses Have a Voice

Ascension Seton culture supports the autonomy of nurses through shared governance. Endowed with an unusually high degree of decision-making authority, Ascension Seton nurses have a voice in virtually everything we do — from patient care issues to equipment selection.

Evidence-Based Practice

Many of Seton’s more than 3,000 nurses have surpassed their career goals, with many certified and presenting and publishing nationally. To support these efforts, Ascension Seton has a Center for Nursing Research that not only generates nursing science, but also implements and translates evidence-based practice.

Community Engagement

Ascension Seton nurses have a strong community presence and make it possible for Ascension Seton to achieve its mission of caring for the poor and vulnerable. As health care professionals, Ascension Seton nurses are involved with local boards, the media, schools and churches, local nonprofit service organizations, health fairs, disaster relief and even health care politics. Our nurses lead the way in adapting care to meet the needs of our increasingly diverse community and patient population.
