Quality care and compassion have been woven into the heart and soul of City of Hope since the beginning. Perhaps less well known is the important part City of Hope nurses play in the broader City of Hope mission.

Our patients, their families and our staff are all part of a unified effort to win the fight against cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other life-changing diseases. Our nurses are the primary conduit through which our leading-edge research informs our compassionate care, and vice versa.

Your role in this virtuous cycle is crucial.



City of Hope’s professional practice model (PPM) is relationship-based care, empowering the people within the organization to align the processes and structures of care delivery with the way they intend to relate to each other as people. As a City of Hope nurse, you are daily challenged to expand your skills and expertise and to practice at the highest levels of your licensure. Over 75 percent of our nurses are B.S.N. prepared. We know that only as you grow and improve will we grow and improve.
