Nursing at MMC

Sabbatical Program

The Sabbatical program allows nurses, who deliver direct patient care, to receive up to 200 hours of paid time-off to implement a project related to systems improvement, patient/family centered care and education, and promotion of evidenced based practices.  

Nurses who demonstrate commitment to MMC's Department of Nursing's Vision, Mission and Philosophy are encouraged to apply for this annual award and submit relevant proposals according to Sabbatical guidelines.  This exciting opportunity offers support to develop and implement a scholarly/or evidence based project, complete a research initiative, and/or promote systems innovations or improvements.  The Sabbatical also promotes professional development as one pursues a personal goal to benefit nursing practice and safe patient and family centered care.

For more information, contact the Center for Clinical and Professional Development.
