NorthStar Institute

The first of its kind in Michigan, NorthStar Institute is the research and innovation arm of NorthStar Care Community. Focused on improving quality of life for patients and families facing serious illness at the local, state and national levels, the Institute is a source of groundbreaking research, education, and community outreach initiatives. The Institute also serves as a forum where healthcare experts can exchange ideas, collaborate, and explore new ways to improve care.

To ensure we’re providing exceptional care for our patients and their families, we require our registered nurses and aides to pass national certification exams. The NorthStar Institute conducts review courses on an ongoing basis to prepare eligible staff for these exams.

We also offer training and educational programs for professionals affiliated with other organizations. These courses present opportunities for attendees to fulfill contact hour requirements as part of their licensure. The Institute is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by the Wisconsin Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
