Nationally Recognized Excellence

Our First Magnet Recognition ®

With this credential, Chesapeake Regional joins the global community of Magnet-recognized organizations that just a small, and select group of U.S. health care organizations have achieved. The ANCC’s  Magnet Recognition Program® distinguishes organizations that meet rigorous standards. The Magnet® program is recognized as the gold standard of nursing excellence.

Nursing care at Chesapeake Regional is based on Jean Watson’s Theory of Human Caring which guides us through a holistic approach that accentuates the human touch as the foundation of our practice. We are committed to delivering best-in-class, compassionate care to our patients through excellence in evidence-based practice and innovation. Because of this, Chesapeake Regional nurses are role models for nursing practice and are recognized as collaborators, educators and mentors.

Our nursing leaders are an experienced group of professionals who are dedicated to their teams, and take pride in helping nurses achieve professional advancement. We empower our nurses to lead practice changes through a shared governance structure, and, whether you’re a new graduate or an experienced nurse, we offer professional growth throughout your career with a Clinical Ladder Program, a Nurse Residency Program, a Preceptor Program, tuition reimbursement and specialty certification programs.

As a large community hospital, we offer a variety of clinical areas for nurses to practice. CRH's unique position as one of the few remaining independent hospitals in our area allows us to offer rewarding nursing careers with benefits supporting flexibility, financial security and work-life balance - an approach that empowers our nurses to realize their full potential at work, while still caring for their personal well-being and families at home.
