Nursing Excellence

An all-encompassing program that enables you to fulfill your potential and achieve your professional goals.

St. Joseph Health has created a unique Nursing Center of Excellence in order to empower, support and develop nurses in every way possible.

The Center is based on five eternal core values: Dignity, Excellence, Justice, Compassion and Integrity. These fundamental principles are integrated with Domains of Professional Practice and key organizational components to create our dynamic Professional Practice Model.

Our goal is to achieve optimal patient outcomes through accountability, responsibility, collaboration, professional growth and development of each healthcare team member. To fulfill this ideal, we have developed the following organizational/environmental elements in support of our caregivers.

Make a meaningful impact through our Shared Governance Model

Our shared Governance Model gives a voice to our staff nurses in decisions regarding their professional practice and work environment.

Our Nurses lead and participate on shared governance councils, which include:

  • Clinical Development Council
  • Clinical Practice Council
