Nursing Education

Nursing places a strong emphasis on orientation of new and experienced nurses, in-service education, continuing education and academic education.

Nursing education and training supports nurses in advancing their knowledge, while strengthening the nursing workforce at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. Excellence in nursing is the result of years of education and training, and a commitment to lifelong learning on the part of individual nurses and our organization.
