Nursing Professional Practice Model

Mission, Vision and Values

What is a Nursing Professional Practice Model (PPM)?

Why is it important?

Professional Practice Models provide a visual representation of nursing’s Contribution in an organization. Developed by RWJUH Rahway nurses, our model includes values and goals that define the professional nursing identity. It captures the professional elements and relationships that define the complex role of the nurse.

The RWJUH Rahway Nursing Professional Practice Model:

The patient and family encompassed by healing hands serve as the anchor for our model. Encircling our center focuses are words that represent our care delivery system, Patient-Centered Care. This model supports the framework of professional nurses in their everyday practice through leadership, collaboration, best practice, and professional growth. It fosters the importance of superior patient care, unifies nursing practice, and lifelong learning. These elements align with organizational goals, mission, and values.
