From the labor and delivery unit, to the always-busy emergency department or the growing cardiovascular and oncology units, nursing offers a meaningful experience at Vidant North Hospital. 

For many, a career in nursing means fostering a community of care as they work to make positive outcomes for the patients that come into their lives. 

At Vidant North, where the range of services continues to grow, nurses have a chance to provide essential care to the Roanoke Rapids and surrounding communities. 

“This is an exciting time for our care teams at Vidant North,” said Jason Harrell, RN, president of Vidant North. “Our team is growing along with the level of services we can provide to our patients. Our oncology unit is now part of the Vidant Cancer Care program and our cardiac catheterization lab is being outfitted with new technology to provide advanced treatment options.”

The desire to work in the nursing profession can be deeply personal. 

On a recent tour of the nursing units, nurses shared their perspectives with Susan Suiter, RN, interim chief nursing officer for Vidant North. 

Some shared memories of family members who needed care and how they drew inspiration from the care teams. 

Others spoke to the relationships they develop with their patients that oftentimes last long after they leave the hospital. 

“Our nurses are at the heart of how we deliver compassionate, high-quality care,” Suiter said. “Every time I am on a unit, I am so inspired by how Vidant nurses go above and beyond to support our patients and our mission.”

Seeing a patient recover and return to their daily life is what many of the nurses credit as one of their greatest joys on the job. 

One nurse in the cardiovascular unit said helping patients during recovery and seeing their transition from a post-surgery heart surgery state to where they are up and walking around the hospital halls is true inspiration. 

For Sara Long, staff nurse II, her team in the cardiac catheterization lab helps those suffering from heart attacks or other cardiovascular diseases receive the treatment they need. 

A 3-5 year plan is in place to advance the level of care on the unit to help keep care close to home.

“We’re excited to grow and serve the community,” said Long. “I live here, we all live here so we’re all very invested in the community. We are looking forward to growing so we can do that. We’re excited about doing STEMIs and other procedures here in the future so we can serve the community.”

Vidant is currently seeking nurses to join its nursing family.
