Donate to Nursing Education at UnityPoint Health - Meriter

Nursing Education

The UnityPoint Health  Meriter Foundation provides ongoing funding that supports continuing educational opportunities for our current nursing staff as well as training initiatives for future nurses.

Last year, nearly 40 educational sessions were offered and included topics in trauma informed care, sepsis identification, and advanced dementia care best practices.  In addition, the Foundation funds the 10-week nurse extern program for nursing students and the nurse residency program for newly graduated nurses to begin the transition from the academic setting to the role of professional nurse.

Patient safety, outcomes and satisfaction are dependent on knowledgeable health care professionals who stay current on best practice skills and technology in the delivery of patient care.
