Nurses look for environments to work where they're valued and respected and they look for an environment where they can participate and be involved in decision-making. We have a strong physician-nurse relationship. Our physicians highly regard our nursing staff.

For nurses, this designation really indicates that this is a place where you would want to work. It's a nurse-friendly environment and one in which they [nurses] are really valued.

This really is the highest recognition within the nursing profession. The nurses at El Camino are so proud of having achieved this status.
