Department Administrator, ICU / CCU / Dialysis
“I’m currently a Doctorate of Nursing Practice candidate. It can be challenging to balance my studies with career and family. My husband and I have 3 boys. But, my leaders have always motivated me to grow, and in turn, I encourage my team to continue their education. I’m extremely grateful for the learning opportunities I’ve been able to pursue.”
The future of care will be driven by breakthroughs in research and technology. At Kaiser Permanente, we use evidence-based data to inform our practice in order to achieve the best outcomes for our patients. We also embrace innovation in the form of technology and beyond, and continually seek out and implement new systems that can help our teams deliver safe, efficient care, while streamlining their daily actions.
Testimonial: Meet Joyce
Meet Joyce, MS, RN
Director of Nursing Practice and Innovation
“Today's challenge is to not simply be a user of technology, but to actively decide which kinds of technologies and systems are meaningful to nurses and patients. There is such a convergence of innovation, new technology, evidence-based knowledge, research, and nurses who are a blend of generations — it’s important to lead in a way that is equally dynamic.”
We share your passion for care. But we also understand that there are many elements that shape your day-to-day life. If taking your kids to school or going for an afternoon run are things that make you happy, we want you to do them. We support you with flexibility and scheduling options, so you aren’t just caring for your patients — you’re caring for you and your family.

RN Clinical Supervisor, Ambulatory
“As a working mom of 3 young boys, I firmly believe in the importance of having a healthy outlet. For me, it’s running. I've run 20+ half marathons and 3 full marathons to date. My training regimen has taught me about staying dedicated, trusting the process, and persevering — lessons applicable to my responsibilities as a manager and to life in general.”
