Chalk Compliments - Nurses Week 2019A GREAT PLACE FOR NURSES TO WORK

At Carolinas Healthcare System Blue Ridge our nurses are making a difference. Every day, nurses in our system step forward to lead the way in delivering care that is patient-centered, innovative and safe.

More than 450 Registered Nurses work full-time, part-time, and prn throughout our organization, and each brings a unique perspective to the profession.

Carolinas HealthCare System Blue Ridge is on a journey to Magnet status, a move that will make our system a destination for nursing practice. As part of this journey, we have implemented Shared Governance with shared decision-making.

Nursing has led the organization in developing Patient and Family-Centered Care. Relationship-Based Care (RBC) education is now incorporated into orientation and ongoing development for all RNs. RBC is based on the premise that:

  • Patients and families are at the center of our care.
  • Excellent RN self-care behaviors are necessary to provide the empathy our patients need for healing.
  • Healthy professional relationships with our colleagues are necessary for a healing environment.


At Carolinas Healthcare System Blue Ridge we embrace lifelong learning and have put programs in place to offer incentives for RNs seeking to advance their education to the BSN and higher degree level. These incentives include streamlining and simplifying the system’s tuition reimbursement program; making tuition assistance easier to access; creating minimum education requirements for leaders; and implementing a requirement that Associate Degree RNs hired to work in the hospital agree to complete a BSN.

If this sounds like the kind of organization you would like to join, we would love to speak with you. You have chosen a career to be proud of in the most trusted profession, and responsibility for creating your own nursing legacy cannot be delegated. Be the best, and in the immortal words of Mahatma Ghandi “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
