The Professional Practice Model incorporates our organization’s mission and values, which are key to the caring relationships developed between our providers, families and staff members.

Our professional nurses focus on high-quality, safe patient care incorporating all of the seven puzzle pieces of our model. Our nursing practice is based on scientific evidence, and we are committed to providing the excellent care needed in today’s complex healthcare environment.

The Professional Practice Model supports the professional development of our nursing staff as well as the work done within the community and around the globe through Loma Linda University Health’s international outreach efforts.

Caring Relationships & Practices

"There are seven components to our Professional Practice Model. These pieces embody who we are, what we do and why we do it. Our mission, values, caring relationships & practices, quality & safety, evidence-based practice, professional development and advocacy & community outreach are all important facets of who we are as nurses at Loma Linda. The piece that speaks most to me is caring relationships and practices. In our current world, what is known as the “new normal” is pretty stressful. Patients are not allowed to have visitors. Nurses and bedside staff are in masks, face shields, hats and gowns. It can be chaotic and difficult, but most of all, very lonely. This piece of our PPM means more than ever right now. Having the opportunity to positively affect a patient and provide them comfort, strength, prayer or just a hand to hold. These small gestures mean so much. It is also the opportunity to care for each other as nurses. To be supportive of all our staff as we navigate these uncertain times. It is so important that people remember even though we may be isolated, we are not alone."

Caring Relationships & Practices

One of the reasons I love working here is the feeling that staff really care about each other. By doing things like celebrating birthdays and recognizing achievements, I truly feel like I'm part of a team where each individual is valued and appreciated.

 

Our Mission

Living out our mission to me means treating each patient with kindness, respect and compassion. It is important to build and maintain patient trust by delivering safe and reliable care.
