We believe a therapeutic relationship between the nurse and the patient/family is essential to our success in providing exceptional and compassionate care. It is this therapeutic and consistent relationship that provides the foundation for our work with patients and families to collaboratively provide evidence-based care and achieve outstanding outcomes. We also recognize relationships with colleagues and with self as essential components of our care delivery system. These relationships contribute to the context of a healthy work environment and directly influence the relationships we build with our patients and their families, and thus influence our success.
