Our Nursing Culture

As an acclaimed Magnet® – recognized hospital, we’re committed to setting the highest standard of nursing care through the strategic use of UT Southwestern’s extensive resources and the ongoing development of innovative programs in clinical practice, research and education.

We start by focusing on our patients and their families. We believe each patient has unique physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs, and we’re dedicated to meeting those needs with truly personalized, compassionate care.

This philosophy mirrors our collaborative team approach. By actively partnering with physicians and nursing colleagues, we leverage our individual strengths to set a higher collective standard for clinical practice — all in an environment built on trust, mutual respect, and a commitment to open and honest communication across every level of the organization.

These ideas help fuel our culture of leadership, and define the exceptional professional experience we offer to every member of our nursing team:

  • A dynamic organizational culture driven by innovation and great care
  • Exhilarating opportunities for learning and professional growth
  • World-class benefits —  including a generous pension program
  • Beautiful, state-of-the-art facilities
  • A profound commitment to excellence in nursing, as recognized by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) through their Magnet Recognition Program®
  • A shared governance model that gives clinical nurses a voice in determining nursing practice, standards, and quality of care
