Adventist Health Professional Practice Model

What is a Professional Practice Model?

The Professional Practice Model adopted by Adventist Health represents the complex role of the professional nurse. Our 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

Why is a Professional Practice Model important?

Our Professional Practice Model helps us describe, guide, unify, and measure nursing practice throughout our organization. Our Professional Practice Model promotes professional identity, job satisfaction, high quality and consistent nursing care, improved quality of patient and family outcomes, and enhanced intra and interdisciplinary communication.
