Goals for Nursing

Our Seven Goals of Nursing

In addition to our Philosophy of Care, our Nursing Department has seven goals that guide their daily work. Our nurses are committed to:

  • Caring for patients with acute and chronic illnesses; facilitating discharge planning; providing palliative care; and offering patient education; illness prevention services, and health maintenance care.
  • Providing comprehensive care that considers the patient’s social, emotional, cultural, and physical needs.
  • Ensuring optimal patient care through objective, systematic monitoring, established standards, and criteria-based evaluations.
  • Ongoing investigation of theories and implementation of techniques designed to improve patient care.
  • Recruiting, developing, and retaining top-quality nurses and providing robust learning experiences for nursing students.
  • Creating and maintaining a progressive environment that fosters creativity, encourages personal and professional growth, and displays the performance of service standards.
  • Ensuring that the competency of all staff is assessed, maintained, demonstrated, and continually improved.
