The philosophy of Nursing at Riverside Medical Center reflects the mission and values of our organization. We support an environment that promotes professional nursing practice and which emphasizes several key principles:

  • Nursing care for each patient and family is individualized, compassionate, and culturally appropriate.
  • Nurses collaborate with patients, families, and other health team members to plan and provide nursing care that will achieve an optimal level of health and wellness, or when this is not possible, support the experience of loss and death.
  • Holistic, coordinated, and effective patient care is based on scientific and ethical principles, research findings, cultural understanding, and experience-based intuition.
  • Excellence in nursing practice is achieved through a shared governance approach that promotes the involvement of the professional nurse in interdisciplinary collaboration and provides venues for the nurse to advocate for the patient in clinical and organizational decision-making.
  • We believe in creating a work climate for nurses that nurtures and supports clinical expertise, education, shared governance and research, fostering the recruitment and retention of nursing staff who demonstrate the highest integrity, competence, and qualifications.
