    Why do nurses choose San Antonio Community Hospital (SACH) to practice their nursing careers?

    It is the numerous nursing opportunities in our multi-specialty environment that allow us to assume a leadership role and provide more effective patient care. SACH is committed to helping you find the specialty that is right for you and supporting your development and growth throughout the duration of your nursing career.
    Education is power and new technology is key. They are the difference between good nurses and great nurses. At San Antonio Community Hospital (SACH), we empower you to be a great nurse every day and at every step in your career.

    Providing a support system that fosters an environment of clinical excellence, SACH's nurse managers and educators provide the educational link between nurses, physicians, patients, and patient families. We provide:

    • As many as two managers or educators for each nursing specialty
    • Numerous higher educational offerings, such as an on-site RN-to-BSN program
    • College loan forgiveness
    • Tuition reimbursement
    • In-house continuing education, certification, and re-certification classes for free
    • Skills lab featuring a simulated patient room for practicing clinical skills
    • One-on-one training
    The process of ongoing learning and education is more than knowledge at SACH. It's our way of nursing. It's our way of life.
    San Antonio Hospital Foundation offers a Nursing Education Grant Program. Grant funds are available for nurses employed at San Antonio Community Hospital (SACH) seeking higher degrees, i.e., LVNs seeking an RN degree, RNs seeking a Bachelor's degree, or RNs seeking a PhD.
    We offer a nursing scholarship program with Chaffey College, Victor Valley College, and Mt. San Antonio College. Scholarships are awarded to deserving students who are accepted into the school's accredited RN nursing programs and are interested in working at SACH in the hospital's Medical/Surgical or Telemetry Units. The Scholarship recipients must also agree in writing to work at SACH for two years after graduation as an RN. Applications may be obtained in each college's Foundation Department.
