Nursing at Houston
Magnet Recognized for Excellence in Nursing
Working in a shared governance environment, our nurses play an active role in the leadership of Houston Methodist Hospital, partnering with physicians to ensure excellence in patient care. Because of the high involvement of the nurses, Houston Methodist Hospital offers a multitude of opportunities for professional growth and development for student nurses, graduate nurses, and seasoned nurses.
Our flagship hospital, Houston Methodist Hospital, is one of a select group of hospitals nationwide to be awarded Magnet recognition for nursing excellence for a fourth consecutive time. Only 7% of hospitals in the United States have achieved Magnet designation, and of those, fewer than 8% have received Magnet status four times. In addition, Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital and Houston Methodist San Jacinto Hospital have also achieved Magnet recognition. Learn more.
For student nurses, our paid MAPP program allows for direct patient care under the guidance of a preceptor. MAPP students gain valuable experience that they will be able to take the next level upon their graduation.
Houston Methodist Hospital graduate nurses participate in our Nurse Residency program which also includes the only Texas Medical Center UHC Nurse Residency Program. The internship is geared toward further developing clinical skills, while the residency side of the program works on leadership and professional growth.
Experienced nurses also have the opportunity to continue their education through a variety of programs including an internship for specialty changes, leadership seminars, credited educational classes, and other additional learning opportunities.
No matter what your experience level is as a nurse, Houston Methodist Hospital is committed to working with you to enhance your career and continue your professional growth. We are leaders in nursing, we are leading medicine.
