Professional Practice Model

nursing practice model

Patient and Family Centered Care is the overarching principle that guides nursing practice at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Hamilton (RWJUHH). Nurses and interprofessional colleagues form partnerships with patients and families and utilize evidence-based practice congruent with their preferences to achieve exemplary outcomes. A modified primary care delivery model is utilized in the majority of patient care units at RWJUHH. In this type of model, nursing care decisions are de-centralized with a focus on autonomy, accountability, and outcomes. Registered Nurses (RNs) partner with patients, families, and interprofessional colleagues to assess, plan, individualize, implement, and evaluate comprehensive care across the health care continuum.

A bi-directional sphere encircling the star was added which lists environment, interprofessional collaboration, global trends, and outcomes as factors that influence the delivery of patient and family centered care.

The colors of the star were integrated to illustrate that the components of the model are not addressed in isolation and all aspects of nursing practice are based on the standards set forth by the American Nurses Association (ANA) and the Magnet® model conceptualized by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
