Kendi's story

Kendi Karambu, a Saint Luke's nurse

"I feel so fortunate to work with such a great team, and have found Saint Luke's as the place where I belong" 

Kendi Karambu, Medical Surgical Nurse · Saint Luke's East Hospital

"One main reason I enjoy working at Saint Luke's is because of my colleagues. The outstanding display of teamwork here makes it easier for me to focus on patient care, safety, and healing. We are able to share ideas and collaborate. I feel so fortunate to work with such a great team, and have found Saint Luke's as the place where I belong. Additionally, experiencing Saint Luke's Residency Program also helped me to grow as a nurse. There are always opportunities for growth within the department, and even larger, within Saint Luke's Health System.

A culture that backs you up

Practical, technological & relational support

Our Patient-to-R.N. ratios are among the best in the region, and we are committed to keeping them low so you can practice safely and at your best. All floors of our Saint Luke’s hospitals receive support; some have nursing assistants or nursing interns to provide help when needed. And our system-wide electronic charting helps you work efficiently and stay at the top of your game.

You’ll never feel alone in your work at Saint Luke’s; we employ a culture of team-based patient care throughout the system. Our culture promotes a mutually respectful and supportive relationship between R.N.s and physicians. Nurses are heard at Saint Luke’s and the result is a highly collaborative and mutually beneficial relationship that positively affects patient care.

Benefits & Compensation

A competitive base with multiple differentials

We invest in the personal and professional well-being of every employee and offer competitive compensation and a family-friendly package.

For new graduate RNs, we know that your career and leadership development will benefit us as much as you – so we pour resources into your growth, training, and development through our Nurse Residency Program.

Strength Through Diversity

At Saint Luke’s, diversity isn’t simply a box we check or a class we teach. We know a professional team that best reflects the ever-changing world around us is one that will drive innovation, foster creativity, and grow in their careers.
