Hoag would not be at the forefront of the medical field today if not for the hard work and dedication of our nurses. Hoag leaders recognize that we can help our nurses spearhead best practices, leading-edge therapies and navigate complex conditions and treatment options by providing continuing education opportunities. The benefits of this commitment to continuing education are twofold. Patient care is impacted greatly, as are the lives of our staff, which are personally enriched. Opportunities for development and career advancement help maintain Hoag’s exceptional level of nursing excellence as well as attract and retain the best and brightest nurses.


87% of Hoag nurses hold a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree or higher. Because of this, Hoag holds Magnet® status, which places Hoag among the top health care organizations in the US. Magnet® status is the highest honor an organization can receive for professional nursing practice, an achievement made possible by scholarships generous donors provide. Together, we must turn our focus to the future to advance the practice of nursing in the coming decades, both locally and nationwide.


Philanthropy advances nursing at Hoag through education opportunities so working nurses can become leaders in their fields and deliver safe, high-quality patient care, now and into the future.
