About Meriter Nursing

Meriter is committed to personalized care and services that exceed the expectations of our patients and families. We can only achieve this by also having a strong commitment to our nurses, ensuring they have a healthy workplace, opportunities to advance and a strong voice at Meriter Health Services.

As nationally recognized health care organization, once our nurses join Meriter, they stay. Our average nurse has more than 12 years of seniority and our RN vacancy rate is one of the lowest in the nation at less than three percent . With opportunities in hospital, clinics and administration settings available, we strive to make sure our nurses find a place that's the right fit for them.

The Meriter Advantage

Meriter is dedicated to Nursing Shared Governance, which is an important partnership between nursing staff and nursing administration. Together we work hand-in-hand to improve patient care and enhance the practice of professional nursing at Meriter.

We enjoy stable leadership and experienced staff mentorship support, achieved not only through our Nurse Residency and Nurse Extern programs, but through the one-on-one relationships between individual staff as well.

In addition to tuition advancement for degree credit courses, Meriter nurses have access to a variety of continuing education classes to support professional development including:

  • A comprehensive critical care course
  • The Acute Care Concepts course
  • CPR instruction for both providers and instructors
  • Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)
