Nursing Careers

Join a group of dedicated professional nurses in a mission of healthcare and healing with Christian compassion at Pella Regional Health Center. You’ll thrive with a growing career in a community-based hospital close to home.

Shared Governance

At Pella Regional, we believe that nurses who care for our patients are in the best position to make decisions related to patient care and nursing practice. In 2007, we launched our Shared Governance Model to provide a foundation of this evidence-based practice in nursing.


In its implementation, four councils were developed:

  • Practice Council – Defines clinical best practices for delivery of nursing care
  • Quality Council – Focuses on supporting the hospital’s performance improvement plan
  • Professional Development Council – Promotes professional growth, ongoing nurse competency, and work environment issues
  • Service Council – Focuses on creating a culture in which every patient receives exceptional service with every encounter

A management council serves as a forum of support for the entire shared governance model. The transition of Shared Governance has led to rewarding experiences for nurses and patients alike.

Our nurses and managers are excited to be part of this culture of accountability and to have a voice for hospital issues.

Relationship-Based Care

Relationship Based Care

Pella Regional’s care delivery model is relationship-based care. It provides a model to support the role of nurses working with all members of the healthcare team.

The focus of this relationship is the nurse with the patient/family, and colleagues. It provides a framework to guide nurses in using resources and prioritizing patient needs.
