Nursing at Lifespan Health System in Rhode Island
Nurses are committed to going above and beyond for the people they serve. Lifespan shares that philosophy. One of the most significant aspects of nursing is working in many professional environments – from hospitals to specialty clinics or physician offices; there is truly something for everyone.

Our employees are committed and invested in the work they do. Lifespan is committed to promoting a culture of well-being, offering a holistic package of benefits to employees and their families while keeping the patient at the center of our work.
Celebrating the Year of the Nurse
2020 has been designated the Year of the Nurse by the World Health Organization to commemorate the 200th birthday of Florence Nightingale. Now, more than ever, it's the perfect time to honor the individual and team efforts of the many nurses who make Lifespan hospitals among the most outstanding in New England – and who every day help us achieve our mission of Delivering health with care.
“It is impossible to overstate the impact that nurses have on our patients. Nurses provide not only medical care but also comfort, peace of mind, and information that enables patients to anticipate what comes next in an unfamiliar situation,” said Timothy J. Babineau, MD, president and chief executive officer.
“Lifespan greatly appreciates and is proud of the nurses who come to work across our system each day,” said Cathy Duquette, PhD, RN, Lifespan’s executive vice president of nursing affairs. “As we celebrate, it is an honor to recognize all nurses for their critical contributions to service excellence and patient safety.”
