VHS Education and Training Center
It’s a great day to learn something new!
The Valley Health System Education and Training Center provides centralized education services to all VHS hospitals in Las Vegas. We’re committed to providing our staff with opportunities to grow and develop new skills so that they can continue to deliver the highest quality care to our patients.
With highly qualified instructors, an excellent online learning management system and varied content, the Center is committed to providing the best resources for training and ongoing education. The majority of our educators have master’s degrees, and a number have doctorates
Our nurses can access continuing education for FREE. We can facilitate affiliation agreements with schools so that we can support your clinical experience as a student at the school of your choice, and we offer tuition reimbursement.
The Center continues to add education, training and ongoing development for all employees. We offer system orientation, discipline-specific orientation, application training, staff development and professional development to support employees as they execute the organizational mission in their work. Our recently expanded 12,000-square-foot facility now includes a simulation lab, computer labs and three large lecture halls. We are an authorized American Heart Association Training Center.
We offer a suite of internships to educate and orient nurses to a variety of specialties. These internships are programs designed to include didactic classroom content, online learning, simulation laboratory and precepted clinical experience for a prescribed amount of time, based on the specialty. These programs prepare nurses for competency in a new role in any of the specialty departments within VHS facilities. Enrollment into internships is a seamless process, initiated by VHS Education staff when the new hire starts employment.
