Opportunities for a Lifetime

Duke Health nurses are dedicated to transforming patient care and raising the standards of nursing excellence. Every day, our nurses go above and beyond the call of duty to deliver extraordinary care to patients. As a Duke Nurse, they have all the advantages of working in a health system with Magnet® recognition, world-class facilities and innovative technologies. And, they benet from living and working in an area that embraces and celebrates diversity. Our leaders guide staff in providing patient-centered and evidence-based care and are involved in mentoring the next generation of health care leaders. Many of Duke Health’s exceptional nurses attended HBCUs; three are featured below:
