Nurses' Perspectives

“I get to experience great pediatric patient care first-hand.”

“I came to Foothill Regional Medical Center because I read about the hospital online and saw that it had high patient satisfaction scores. The hospital staff seemed to really care about the patients. Now I experience that great pediatric patient care first-hand, as well as have the opportunity to transition from home health into subacute pediatrics.  I also love that it is a pediatric teaching hospital where not only are your skills perfected but you get to help children.” – Julienne, LVN, Pediatric Sub-acute

"I was able to help shape a culture of caring."

“Working at a new hospital allows you to help shape the culture and grow with the facility. I feel that the other nurses and I play a role in shaping a culture of caring at Foothill Regional Medical Center. I also appreciate that the CNO and CEO are accessible and I can speak with them directly. At other hospitals, you typically have to go through a chain of command. Not only do they have an open-door policy, but they are responsive to nurses’ feedback.” - Lisette, RN, BSN, Charge Nurse, Med-Surg/Telemetry

"There are multiple learning opportunities provided."

“I started at Foothill Regional Medical Center right out of nursing school. I interviewed for several new graduate programs, but the staff at Foothill made me feel right at home because the interview was a two-way dialogue. I stayed after completing the program because of the multiple learning opportunities provided. Equally important, my co-workers and I work as a cohesive team—quick to help each other out and provide teaching moments.” - Kimberly, RN, BSN, Med-Surg/Tele, 2018 Employee of the Year

"Foothill Regional Medical Center has an amazing work culture."

“I knew I wanted to be a nurse since I was a little girl and treated my friends’ skinned knees with my first-aid kit. Over the past 20 years, I have worked in a variety of hospitals and settings, so I speak from experience when I say Foothill Regional Medical Center has an amazing work culture. The directors and managers are highly visible to encourage staff and resolve issues. Everyone from managers to support staff help each other out.” - Janette, ICU, RN, BSN

Janette graduated Summa Cum Laude with an MHA degree in May 2019.

"Everyone is really kind to each other and that translates into better patient care."

“I choose to work at Foothill Regional because everyone is really kind with each other and that translates into better patient care. We help each other out and I especially enjoy precepting new nurses.” - Rina, RN, Med/Surg and Telemetry
