Nursing at UVA
UVA nurses are looking to work at the highest level in their profession. As expert clinicians and members of the Professional Nursing Staff Organization (PNSO), they push the envelope to grow in both their careers and in life. We make sure they can. UVA's PNSO enables nurses to establish their own professional standards of clinical practice and professional development. Every UVA nurse is a member of our PNSO and has access to innovative programs that foster continued education, training and professional advancement.
Along with our commitment to academic research and our advanced technology, it is the attributes of our people that make our Health System nationally-recognized —human qualities such as persistence, ingenuity, inquisitiveness, dedication, empathy, initiative, perception, imagination and intelligence.
The impact of these qualities cannot be measured with the precise scientific calculations we perform every day. But they guide us in providing the best available patient care, preparing health professionals for the healthcare challenges of tomorrow and bringing our innovation to those we serve.
