Our Guiding Models for Nursing
Professional Practice Model
The nurses at Hackensack University Medical Center deliver high quality, evidence-based, patient-centered care to our patients and their families. Our shared decision-making model provides us with the opportunity to utilize evidence-based practice and nursing research in the delivery of care.
As facilitators and advocates, we develop partnerships in care with our patients, their families and with fellow healthcare professionals.
We embrace lifelong learning, and we encourage and support one another in ongoing professional growth and development.
Our Care Delivery Model is based on Jean Watson’s “Theory of Human Caring,” which is the convergence of the art, theory and science of nursing.
We strive to promote the professional image of nursing through active engagement in patient education, quality initiatives and innovation to promote continuity of care for patients and their families, including local and global outreach.
