Nursing

Nursing

The skilled nurses at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) foster an atmosphere that embodies the Mother Standard® of care—the patient-focused principle upon which CTCA® was founded. Our nurses create an environment that supports teamwork, work-life balance, employee engagement and professional development, which reflect our hospital’s commitment to providing quality, patient-centered care.

To learn more about our program, review our 2019 Nursing Annual Report.

Embarking on our Journey to Magnet Excellence®

The Magnet Recognition Program® is considered the gold standard of nursing excellence, recognizing health care organizations that provide high-quality patient care and professionalism in the nursing practice. Of the more than 5,000 hospitals in the United States, fewer than 7 percent are Magnet-designated. In 2017, CTCA Atlanta formally began the extensive process to become one of them.

Accredited by the Commission on Cancer

CTCA Atlanta is accredited by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) as a Comprehensive Community Cancer Program. Accreditation by the CoC, a quality program of the American College of Surgeons, demonstrates a cancer program’s commitment to providing high-quality, multidisciplinary, patient-centered care, along with access to the wide scope of cancer care services required to diagnose, treat, rehabilitate and support patients along their journey.

DAISY Award for extraordinary nurses

The DAISY Award Foundation was established by a patient’s family who wanted to find a way to thank nurses and honor the work they do for patients and families every day. DAISY partners with health care organizations to recognize nurses’ clinical skills and compassion.

Recent DAISY Award recipients at CTCA Atlanta include:

  • Elaine Wallace, RN: “I want patients to know they are important, and they matter to me. I get emotional talking about it. I try to encourage them.”
  • Alexis Evans, RN: “I have encountered a lot of impactful moments during my nursing career; however, to me, the most impactful is hearing a simple thank you from patients and their families. I would encourage others to become a nurse because it is such a rewarding job.”
  • Stephanie Storey, RN: ““There isn’t anything else I could see myself doing. I enjoy taking care of my patients and their families. Nursing is an amazing career.”
