Nurses and our collaborative teams are the heart of our care delivery system, and our success as an organization is highly dependent on the exceptional care that you provide to all those we serve.  More than ever before, nurses are stepping out of their traditional roles and becoming active contributors and innovators in the transformation of healthcare.  Your ability to excel, despite obstacles, demonstrates your belief in yourself and strong commitment to your profession.  You should be proud of the countless successes you have achieved, and know that you serve as a role model at Cooper.

Many of our team members have been recognized by colleagues and leaders as individuals who promote and foster an optimal healing environment with pride and tireless dedication.  Through your commitment to excellence, you are leading Cooper Nursing in our quest to provide the highest safety, service and quality in a fiscally responsible way.

Nurses are paramount in our mission to serve, to heal, to educate. It is a privilege and honor to lead Cooper Nursing and the collaborate care teams.  Thank you for all you do!

"If you save a life, you’re a hero. 

If you save a hundred lives, you’re a nurse.”
