We're proud of our nurses and their work to restore and maintain the health of neighbors, family and friends. Like everything else in our healthcare system, our nursing culture is built upon our mission: Healing all people with compassion, faith, and excellence. These five fundamentals in our mission statement guide our practice and set the highest standard of care.
Breaking Down Our Mission
Healing: Restoring and maintaining the health of our community is at the center of all we do.
All people: We believe healthcare is a human right, and nobody should be disadvantaged when it comes to their care.
Compassion: We believe in human touch, providing comfort and treating our patients and one another with dignity.
Faith: We know that faith is powerful and effective in healing.
Excellence: Named among Modern Healthcare's Best Places to Work in Healthcare in 2020, 2021 and 2022, we're committed to exceeding industry standards, as shown in our hospitals earning the most sought-after designations.
One of our hospitals (Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital) has earned recognition as a Magnet hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) three consecutive times, and another of our hospitals (Roper St. Francis Mount Pleasant Hospital) has earned recognition as an ANCC Pathway to Excellence hospital three consecutive times. Our other hospitals are currently working toward the same designations.

Reasons to Join Our Team
Shared governance – Have a Voice in Your Practice
Roper St. Francis Nursing has shared governance that involves direct care nurses in decision-making regarding professional practice, research, quality, patient safety and professional advancement. These councils focus on such issues as nursing policies, evidence-based practice and process improvement, quality and patient safety, nursing research, specialty certification and continuing education, informatics, RN turnover rates and retention activities and recognition of our nurses' achievements.
Mobile Resource Pool
Our Mobile Resource Pool (MRP) could be your perfect career fit if you love variety in your work. The Mobile Resource Pool is a system-wide nurse float pool that rewards clinical skill and commitment to flexibility. Experienced RNs may choose the MRP tier option that best fits their lifestyle and career needs, while helping to meet the staffing needs of the organization. There are specialty specific positions available as well.
In addition to competitive pay and health benefits, we offer scholarships, a tuition reimbursement program and various student loan relief programs. As you grow in your career, there are always opportunities to earn more with special charge differentials, preceptor stipends or by earning a BSN or MSN degree.
And we promote work-life balance, so we provide flexible schedule options. In approved units, we offer weekend-only work (WOW). The WOW program helps meet special staffing needs and allows nurses to work three 12-hour weekend shifts and receive extra compensation.
