Nursing CareersTotal RewardsGuide
At Rochester Regional Health, we give our nurses the resources needed to build a rewarding career shaped by their talents, interests and goals. Our unique and valuable set of benefits fosters the professional development and personal growth of our nurses – enabling the continued delivery of exceptional care to our patients and their families.
We know a positive work environment is important to your ongoing success. That’s why we’re committed to building a culture that promotes the following five elements:
Leaders and providers are readily available to our nurses, and are eager to help them grow and succeed. We work as a team and strive to bring out the best in each other.
Differences are valued. Nurses at every level of the organization are encouraged to share ideas, are empowered to make improvements, and are rewarded and recognized for doing so.
Nurses and their families have regular opportunities to relax, celebrate and get to know their colleagues, both at work and after hours.
Our nurses are part of our family, and we treat them that way. We care about who they are and what matters to them – personally & professionally.
We offer a wide range of workplace environments and experiences to suit every nurse personality and aspiration, from fast-paced and high intensity to highly personalized and predictable.
We offer many opportunities for our nurses to quickly increase their total compensation right from the start! Beginning with a competitive base rate, RRH nurses can add to their pay through shift differential, or by participating in our national certification and clinical ladder programs which offer additional add-on compensation.
