Professional Practice Model:
the foundation that sets us apart...

The ability to provide excellent, compassionate care to patients and families revolves around the successful integration of many elements. This is the foundation of the Strong Nurse Model—that structure, technology and social experience—all contribute to creating an environment in which nurses and patients thrive.

In our model, expert practice is achieved through the combined influence of nursing practice, organizational supports, and patient and family interactions. The components of these three tenets support learning, discovery, creativity and recogntion. All aspects of a magnetized environment.
