At the beginning of any career, three factors typically guide someone into pursuing an education: a dream, the drive, and determination. As a leading health system in the region, we understand that most of our team members need to obtain specific knowledge and skills to reach the career they dream of having.

Memorial Health System is proud to invest in our future Registered Nurses (RN) in order to get them where they need to be in their careers. Times have changed, and the demand for amazing RNs is high. That is why we have enhanced and sought after new programs that are the most competitive and helpful for our future team members.
