Why Tanner?

Exceptional care starts with exceptional nurses

For generations, nurses at Tanner Health System have been part of a unique, patient-centered tradition of neighbors caring for neighbors.

Our nurses deliver high-quality care in an environment that recognizes compassion and rewards multidisciplinary teamwork. We strive to provide an optimal work environment for our nurses by promoting safe nurse-to-patient ratios. Nurses receive extremely competitive compensation and benefits, including specialty differential pay as well as weekend and night shift differential pay. Tanner’s human resources professionals routinely survey compensation packages throughout metro Atlanta to ensure the organization’s benefits and compensation programs are competitive to attract and retain top-tier nursing professionals.

A career with impact.
