Nursing and UnitedHealth Group
UnitedHealth Group (UHG) is one of the nation’s largest employers of nurses. As a diversified health and well-being company, we employ more than 14,000 nurses in all 50 states and 7 countries.
UHG nurses serve in a wide variety of clinical and business roles, including direct patient care, telephonic health advocacy, care management, business operations, human capital, analytics, product development, process management, network development, finance, relationship management and consulting.
Because of our reach and our commitment to not just the nurses who work at UnitedHealth Group, but nurses everywhere, we created the Center for Nursing Advancement.
What is the Center for Nursing Advancement (CfNA)?
We are committed to building a strong culture of nursing leadership, blending clinical expertise with solid business acumen and building capacity to lead with personal and professional health, well-being and effectiveness.
The CfNA helps prepare nurses for expanding roles and solving the most pressing health care problems of today and tomorrow, tackling the challenges of a health care system in transition and shaping the future of the health care industry.
Valued Partners like the National Association of Hispanic Nurses
Studies show that when people have access to healthcare providers that share a similar background or ethnicity as they do, they are more likely to seek and follow care recommendations and ultimately have better health outcomes. As the Hispanic population increases in the United States, the need for bilingual/bicultural Hispanic nurses rises. Of the more than 3 million registered nurses in the United States, only about 3.6 percent are Hispanic. We are honored to be a corporate member of NAHN and are committed to working with partners such as NAHN to recruit and promote Hispanic nurses across the United States.
