About Our Nursing Program

At Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System, we have created an environment that supports, values, rewards and recognizes professional nurses. Our nurses are involved, engaged and vital members of our SVMHS family and the communities we serve. They deliver exceptional care fostered by an innovative and collaborative culture. 

Nurses at Salinas Valley Memorial provide day-to-day, evidenced-based patient care, act as an essential link between patients and physicians and help shape our hospital's best practices. They play a vital role in expanding local, quality nursing education by serving as adjunct faculty for the nursing program at Hartnell College.

If working in an innovative, creative, rewarding and caring environment sounds appealing to you, we invite you to explore further.
