Our Nursing Team

Crozer-Keystone nurses are vital members of the hospital family and community they serve. Our nurses can be found at the bedside, in the classroom and at events throughout the area. Here are just a few of the ways our nurses constantly making a difference:

Research and Innovation

Crozer-Keystone’s nurses are skilled in evidence-based practice and research. This empowers them to explore the safest and best practices for their patients and practice environment, and to generate new knowledge.

Our nurses also serve on Crozer-Keystone’s system-wide Institutional Review Board (IRB). They review proposals for research and share the knowledge they gain with their professional network of nursing colleagues.

Nurses as Teachers

Crozer-Keystone nurses are actively involved in training the healthcare providers of tomorrow. From school-aged children to high schoolers and college students, our nurses are passionate about providing healthcare education.

They also provide the clinical training for numerous nursing and allied health programs throughout the region. The following are just a few examples of how Crozer-Keystone nurses lend their time and expertise to educate fellow nurses as well as their community.

Pre-Medical Careers Program

Zurbach-Nurse Springfield.pngNurses participate assist in the Crozer-Keystone Pre-Medical Careers Program. Developed in 2002 in partnership with the Delaware County Intermediate Unit, the program brings talented high school students to Taylor Hospital and Crozer-Chester Medical Center to explore medical career opportunities. The students rotate through many hospital departments, and shadow clinicians who are more than willing to share their knowledge.

The program earned an Excellence in Youth Award from the Delaware County Workforce Investment Board.
