A Greeting From Our Nursing Leadership

Dear Nursing Colleagues:

Nurses at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Rahway have served our community for over 100 years. Nursing is the leading force of the provision of care. Each day, our nurses go beyond the expectation seizing opportunities to share ideas that are dynamic, creative and innovative translating exquisite nursing practice. Our nurses are involved in scholarly research, on a journey leading toward a self-governance model that captures the voices of nursing staff that makes a difference in patient care. It is inspired by an environment that fosters, identifies and rewards, the commitment of passionate cutting edge thoughts that underpin the promise to deliver safe, quality, and efficient care advancing the nursing profession.

In support of professional practice a Clinical Ladder is in place to recognize the work of the nurses in advancing their practice. Nursing is a career of lifelong learning; National certifications are encouraged that are influenced by collaboration, empowerment and professional development.

As CNO and Vice President of one hospital in a leading healthcare system in New Jersey, I am delighted to border myself with dedicated, unswerving, and hardworking professionals that have made their passion, their life.

Ann Marie Shears, MA, RN, NE-BC
Chief Nursing Officer and Vice President of Patient Care Services
