Nursing at University Health System
Philosophy of Nursing
E-mail

Philosophy of nursing states our thoughts on what we believe to be true about the nature of the profession of nursing and provide a basis for nursing activities. It endorses ethical values we hold as basic and bases our beliefs in theory. These values and beliefs are congruent with the University Health System's Mission, Vision and Values. To facilitate patient care, we use Helen Erickson's Nursing theory of Modeling and Role Modeling.

We work as a collaborative team to continuously improve the health and well being of ourselves and the community.

We accept and respect our patients' unique view of self and their world.

We believe in the involvement of the professional nurse in shared governance, and we incorporate research and evidence-based practice in the development of standards of care.

Nurses are responsible for lifelong learning, accountability for their practice and participation in interdisciplinary activities.
