Want to try a new area of nursing? Interested in expanding your nursing knowledge?

Northwest Hospital & Medical Center encourages nurses to explore their interests in a variety of nursing specialties. The Northwest Hospital Specialty Training program is a 12-18 week program designed for experienced nurses interested in moving into a new specialty area. The Specialty Program is structured to provide a gradual increase in responsibility and independence while integrating theoretical and critical components. During the program, each participant will be assigned a clinical preceptor. Many of the specialty training programs also contain a significant didactic component along with the clinical experience.
