The Nursing Professional Practice Model, refined in 2011, provides the conceptual framework for nursing at Mercy:
- At the center of our focus is Caring for Patient, Family and Community, guided by the principles outlined in the Mercy Model of Caring.
- In providing patient-centered care, we assume individual and organizational accountability to meet or exceed standards of care and behavior.
- We are supported by a strong infrastructure and a commitment to Nursing Excellence and Nursing Well-Being.
- Nursing exists at Mercy to fulfill the Mission, Values and Strategies of the organization as a whole.
