Sharp Grossmont Hospital is proud to be Sharp HealthCare’s only Comprehensive Stroke Center, and East San Diego County’s largest healthcare facility. Sharp Grossmont Hospital has also been awarded its fourth Magnet designation for excellence in nursing practices and quality patient care.

The Neuroscience program at Sharp Grossmont Hospital offers the most advanced neurological and surgical treatments in the region. Our state-of-the-art neuroscience unit is dedicated to the care of patients with both common and rare neurological conditions. Neuroscience nurses receive a robust, neurology and neurosurgery-specific orientation including didactic, skill, preceptor, and simulation sessions. Initial orientation, combined with annual education, provides nurses with a strong neuroscience foundation, and enables them to provide top tier care for this specialty patient population. This broad neuroscience foundation of knowledge also supports neuroscience nurses to take the Certified Neuroscience Registered Nurse (CNRN) certification exam after 1 year of experience. Professional development and growth opportunities are strongly supported through the Magnet structure, research, conferences, lectures, webinars, certification, and education reimbursement.
