Nursing Philosophy

Our fundamental commitment is to deliver the highest quality of nursing care to our patients in a safe environment. Nursing is a blend of art and science based on knowledge, skill, integrity, experience and creativity.

We are relentless in continually improving patient safety through the ongoing monitoring and evaluation of outcomes and resolution of identified concerns. We provide inter-professional care by collaborating with our colleagues. We treat each other, our patients, visitors and peers with dignity and respect in every interaction.

We create a practice environment culture that encompasses our core values of respect, ownership, superior service, and excellence that:

  • Recognizes that the patient’s biophysical, psychosocial, environmental, self-care, educational, and discharge needs are included in the delivery of nursing care. We are advocates for our patients and their families.
  • Acknowledges our specific patient population and provides care respectful of patient ethnicity, creed, nationality, religion, economic status, and gender orientation.
  • Encourages an environment that promotes professional growth, a spirit of inquiry, enhanced critical thinking, and team work. We are committed to the education and mentoring of the nursing, medical, and allied health students of tomorrow.
  • Supports a climate that values, nurtures, and recognizes clinical expertise, education, shared governance, and research.
  • Supports evidence-based research and practice with the purpose of improving patient care, advancing the profession and in leading the industry.
  • Ensures our care delivery is effective and efficacious.
