Nursing Education

At Genesys, we believe that nursing blends science and art into "intensive caring." Genesys nurses are much more than patient care givers; they are leaders, teachers, mentors, and consultants. They are friends, colleagues, and partners. They are an integral part of our team, our family - the linch pin of patient care.

Genesys is proud of its reputation as the health care market leader in Genesee County and surrounding communities. Customers name Genesys as Number One for quality of nursing care and friendliest employees. That’s because we treat our patients the way we would want to be treated as a patient. We pride ourselves on providing patient centered care, creating Hope through Healing. Our comprehensive clinical orientation education provide our staff with a strong foundation to meet the needs of patients and families, as well as support in growth and development of the Nurse professional.

Genesys nurses work in multi-disciplinary collaboration with a team of dedicated professionals to provide caring, compassion, and clinical excellence in their day-to-day interactions with patients and their family members.

Genesys nurses set the standard in quality patient care!
