What Nurses Have to Say About Working at St. Luke's

We truly value all our nurses here at St. Luke's. Here's what some of our nurses have to say about nursing at St. Luke's.


"I feel fortunate to work in an environment where my own voice is heard and my opinion is valued on issues that directly influence the care I provide to patients."

Jenny Houlihan, RN, MSN, CNML
Director, Adult Acute Services


"I just felt better after attending Reigniting the Spirit - it was a much needed break. The experience helped me focus on what's important as well as the importance of my job and the work we do here. I'm eternally grateful to St. Luke's for what they've done with Reigniting the Spirit."

Dee Ryan-Naber, RN
Pain Clinic


"The Frontline Leadership experience has not only improved my leadership skills as a nurse, but it also increased my ability to initiate and implement change."

Jill Beltramea, RN
Birth Care Center


"There are a lot of opportunities available to frontline staff, particularly Frontline Leadership. This group has taught me a lot about the nursing profession and all the different avenues within it. Working together with nurses from different areas really helps develop a sense of a team approach."

Whitney Ash, RN, BSN
Neurology/Oncology Unit


"St. Luke's Hospital has allowed me the constant resources to become the nurse I take pride in today. I have always been encouraged and supported in my professional decisions, changing roles and growth in my career. The continuing education, challenging environment and learning atmosphere is what I crave and always have been provided. As a current St. Luke's Emergency Department nurse, I can honestly say, I love going to work, I love my job, I love being a nurse."
