TriStar Educational Institute Overview

The Partners

The establishment of the TriStar Healthcare Educational Institute within TriStar Health System is a partnership between Union University - Center for Excellence in Health Care Practice and TriStar Health System.

TriStar Healthcare Educational Institute

There are two purposes of the TriStar Healthcare Educational Institute. One purpose of the Institute is to enhance the effectiveness of the TriStar nurse in delivering high quality care that strengthens the wellness and safety of the patient and promotes efficiency of the health care system. The second purpose of the Institute is to cultivate nurses and non-nursing professionals as future leaders for the TriStar Health System.

The pedagogies being implemented to promote the efficiency of the TriStar nurse in serving the patient, TriStar Health System, and development of future healthcare leaders will be an approach that is built on a three-tier educational system that includes the pedagogies of didactic teaching in the classroom, physiological instruction with experiences in human patient simulation, anatomical instruction with experiences in human gross anatomical lab, and clinical preceptorship experiences within the hospitals.

TriStar's Mission and Values

Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life. In recognition of this commitment, we strive to deliver high quality, cost effective healthcare in the communities we serve. In pursuit of our mission, we believe the following value statements are essential and timeless.
