2 10.19.2018 KEZ At the RWJ/Barnabas Health System the value that is placed on developing and supporting our professional nurses through education and development is unprecedented. Since the merger between RWJ and Barnabas Health we have explored and developed many innovative ways to help educate our staff to ensure that outcomes and safety are always the priority. Our exceptional nursing practice as one system is based on providing structural empowerment for patient-family centered care, shared decision-making, autonomy, and clinical excellence.

All of this wonderful work could not be done without education and professional development and the support of our staff from The Center for Professional Development, Innovation and Research. We know that as you review this catalog of educational offerings offered at 11 hospitals across the system for 2018 you will find many ways to give a voice to your ideals, to strive for personal, professional, and academic excellence, and to accept the challenge of the human experience in health care and beyond. It is through your participation in these educational programs that will enable us to exceed our reputation as one of the most innovative and successful health care systems in the country.

The center offers orientation programs, in-service education, simulation training, continuing education courses, leadership development classes and clinical skills validation across all of the specialties. This environment of academic excellence is palpable throughout our campuses which clearly sets us apart from other health systems across the country. We believe that excellence is only possible through ongoing education, development and training. Our team of highly skilled and knowledgeable clinicians from CPDIR is committed to providing ongoing opportunities to practice, learn and grow professionally.

They are the foundation for imparting clinical skills, theoretical understanding and critical reasoning to ensure outstanding patient-family centered care. This catalog highlights the basic and on-going courses that are being offered in 2018 across the health system. It is in no way a comprehensive document of all the education and training that is provided annually by our clinicians throughout the year. Please use this as a guide to help you plan your year of education and professional development and reach out to your hospital specific CPDIR department with questions as we progress through this journey as one system together.
