Nursing Philosophy

  • Nursing care is delivered in a manner consistent with the mission and values of Carondelet Health. The Carondelet Health Caring Model is founded in our organization's mission and values.
  • We deliver care that is patient/family centered, fostering a healing environment. Patients and their families are included in the development, implementation and evaluation of their plan and delivery of care.
  • We provide care in an interdisciplinary manner, collaborating with multiple clinical disciplines and care providers in the delivery of quality patient care.
  • We have individual authority and accountability for the clinical management of nursing practice. We have the autonomy to make individual decisions based on nursing knowledge, evidence-based practice guidelines and standards.
  • We utilize professional practice standards and regulatory health care agencies standards to guide the practice of nursing at Carondelet Health. The Missouri Nurse Practice Act, the ANA Code for Nurses with Interpretive Statements, ANA Code of Ethics, Nursing: A Social Policy Statement, and the Standards of Clinical Nursing Practice are a few of the documents that guide the practice of nursing. 
  • We actively participate in shared decision making through the Shared Leadership model.   
  • We balance the fiscal components of nursing care with the impact on the quality of care provided to our patients. 
  • We adhere to our own published performance standards and hold all nursing members accountable to these standards. 
  • We continuously strive for excellence in the delivery of patient care. We value the use of nursing research to support the delivery of nursing care using evidence-based guidelines
    and practices.
  • We exemplify the role of the nurse to all people we encounter; patients, families, co-workers, physicians and the community at large.
  • We respect human rights and provide safeguards for ethical, legal and competent practice. We provide for equality of care in the presence of cultural, social and economic difference in patients and families. 
  • We provide for equality in our policies and procedures, with concern for the cultural, social and economic differences of personnel in our organization.
  • We enhance and maintain collaborative partnerships with schools of nursing in the community that promote influence on the future of nursing.
