Bon Secour Maryview Recognized for Great Work Environment for Nurses

Bon Secours Maryview Medical Center Announces American Nurses Credentialing Center Pathway to Excellence Re-Designation

Bon Secours Maryview Medical Center is pleased to announce it has achieved  Pathway to Excellence re-designation by the American Nurses Credentialing  Center.  Achieving the designation, demonstrates that nurses at Bon Secours Maryview are in a work environment where they can excel, feel empowered, and are valued as integral members of inter-professional health care teams.

“Our nursing team is honored to have achieved our Pathway to Excellence re-designation,” says Helena Walo, RN, MSN, MHA, chief nursing officer for Bon Secours Maryview. “This recognizes our commitment to our nurses’ well-being and our ability to provide excellent patient care for our community.”

The Pathway to Excellence designation is granted based on the confirmed  presence of nursing practice standards. For an organization to earn the  distinction, it must successfully undergo a thorough review process that  documents foundational quality initiatives in creating a positive work  environment — as defined by nurses and supported by research. These  initiatives must be integrated in the facility’s practices, policies and  culture. Nurses in the organization validate the presence of the criteria  in the organization through participation in a completely voluntary and  confidential online survey.  The honor encourages other nurses to join  their colleagues in this desirable and nurturing environment.
