Nursing at Saint Peter's

Providing Award-Winning Nursing Care

Nurses have been caring for patients since we opened our doors more than 100 years ago. Our award-winning nursing staff continues our rich history of high-quality, specialty care delivered by talented, competent, well-educated professional nurses and skillful support staff.

Saint Peter’s is only the fifth hospital in the world to earn Magnet® recognition for nursing excellence six times in a row from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Our intensive care and neonatal intensive care nurses have received the Beacon Award for excellence in critical-care nursing from the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses for the fifth and second consecutive times, respectively. Further evidence of Saint Peter's excellence in nursing is the achievement of being in the top 10 percent in the nation for nursing certification. 

Saint Peter's nurses have earned degrees at a rate of 81 percent, a figure that far exceeds the national benchmark of 61 percent. Under the leadership of chief nursing officer Linda Carroll, MSN, RN-BC, Saint Peter's has developed a nursing intern program, designated education units and created partnerships with a variety of academic organizations that offer advanced nursing degrees both online and on-site.
