Nursing Professional Practice Model

Our Nursing Professional Practice Model framework evolved over many years. The core of our current model reflects our reason for being: patients, families, and our community, based on our faith as designated by the cross embedded n the Lourdes logo. Key concepts in our model include the main elements of professional nursing: Clinical Practice, Education, Research, and Leadership. Four additional concepts reflect our core values and relationship-based care: Spirituality, Compassion, Service, and Communication.
