The Adventist Health Professional Practice Model

Professional Practice Model

The Professional Practice Model adopted throughout Adventist Health represents the complex role of the professional nurse. This Professional Practice Model has a two-fold purpose:

  • To define and support nursing control over the care environment and the delivery of care
  • To capture the values, goals and relationships that define the professional nursing identity

The Professional Practice Model helps to describe, guide, unify and measure nursing practice throughout Adventist Health Glendale. It promotes professional identity, job satisfaction, high quality and consistent nursing care, improved quality of patient and family outcomes and enhanced intra- and inter-disciplinary communication.

Our Professional Practice Model incorporates our mission and values as the foundation for all we do. It is intentionally designed to match nursing skills with patient needs as reflected by The Synergy Model for Patient Care, to demonstrate care as outlined by The Science of Caring, and to support a professional development path as seen in the From Novice to Expert theory.
