Our Nursing Mission Statement

Memorial’s nursing mission is to promote a caring culture that empowers each nurse to provide safe and quality care to patients and families and to uphold Memorial’s commitment to the community through excellent leadership, evidence-based practice, and professional development.


Memorial Hospital is committed to caring for our community, patients, families, and our team. We are committed to continuous improvement and excellent patient care. Here’s how:

Nursing Excellence - Memorial is currently working towards The Magnet Recognition which designates organizations a designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) that recognizes nursing excellence. Click here to read about our Nursing Practice Model.

Shared Governance - From unit-based councils to our organization-wide council infrastructure, shared governance provides bedside leaders the vehicle for a true voice in nursing practice and operations. Our basic philosophy when making decisions about nursing and nurses is to make sure we have the right bedside nurses at the table to help make decisions.

New Grad Residency Program - A one year “transition to practice” evidence-based program designed to support the novice nurse and engage in the profession at a higher level (not to be confused with orientation). The curriculum focuses on quality, patient safety, informatics, communication, evidence-based practice, self care and mindfulness.

Internships/Fellowships - Internships are designed for novice nurses as they enter a nursing specialty. Our internships are evidence-based and designed based on nursing specialty recommendations. Fellowships are designed for experienced nurses who are changing their specialty.

Tuition Reimbursement - Advancing nursing education is a national recommendation for the profession and in supporting that recommendation and the needs of society, Memorial provides tuition reimbursement support after one year.

Certified Nursing Support - Certified nursing is the hallmark of an expert nurse within their specialty. Certification preparation support, certification reimbursement and differentials are available for our certified and certified eligible RNs.

Evidence-Based Nurse Staffing - We believe nurse staffing should reflect the national recommendations for a specialty, nursing experience, nursing skill mix and patient acuity/activity. Our charge nurses are empowered to make staffing decisions that support their teams.

Nursing Safety - Memorial is a big supporter of #HospitalSafetyZones. Studies suggest that half of all verbal and physical assaults by patients against healthcare workers are never reported. Violence is not part of the job.

Flexible Schedules - Whether you are looking for a full time or part time role in nursing, if you are an experienced nurse we will work with you to find the schedule that fits our needs and your life. As the largest healthcare provider in Southwest Louisiana, we are always open to discussing the possibilities with seasoned, expert nurses.

Daisy Nursing Award - Recognition can have significant meaning for nurses. It serves as a reminder that the work you do makes a difference. The DAISY Award, created in honor of Patrick Barnes, allows colleagues, patients and patients’ families to recognize extraordinary nurses and the contributions you make every day.

Healthy Workforce & Wellness Programs - Memorial recognizes that part of our mission is to not only create a workplace that offers growth and opportunity from a professional standpoint,
but one that nourishes our individual team members as human beings. Our ongoing wellness initiatives work towards creating an environment that fosters respect, dignity, and diversity.
