Welcome from the CNO/COO

Hello, I am Amber Egyud. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about nursing careers at Chesapeake Regional Healthcare.

From as early as I can remember, I have wanted to be a nurse. I was drawn to the power that nurses have to advocate for those who need us most and to truly make a difference. Whether helping patients to a successful recovery or a peaceful death, we forever become a part of each other’s lives, and this is a privilege that I have held sacred throughout my career.

Nursing care at Chesapeake Regional is based on Jean Watson’s Theory of Human Caring in which we use 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 who 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.

This is an exciting time for our profession as we are in the unique position to lead change in the healthcare industry. The possibilities to effectively advocate for improved patient outcomes are endless.

As a large community hospital, we offer a variety of clinical areas for nurses to practice. I am confident that we have a position that matches your interests and skills, and you’ll feel right at home joining a growing family that has a strong commitment to the community.
