St. Vincent defines nursing as the art and science of promoting, restoring and maintaining health, and preventing illness and injury for individuals, families and communities.

St. Vincent Nursing Philosophy’s foundational beliefs arise from Florence Nightingale and Virginia Henderson. Nightingale believed nursing was a call from God and that the sick deserved civilized care, regardless of their station in life. She knew that cleanliness, fresh air, sanitation, comfort and socialization were necessary to healing. Virginia Henderson is known as the modern-day mother of nursing. Her work focused on the patient centered care.
St. Vincent Nursing Excellence Professional Practice Model is our driving force of nursing care.
Professional nursing practice embodies a well-defined clinical knowledge base, specialized proficiency in technical skills, knowledge-based caring and a deep respect and reverence for mankind.
Our shared governance decision-making structure addresses issues of:
Through our Professional Practice Model, St. Vincent nurses can provide the highest quality of care.
Shared Governance was founded on the cornerstone principles of partnership, equity, accountability and ownership at the point of service. St. Vincent has six Governance Councils that assume responsibility, accountability and function for defined elements of nursing practice.
These Councils are:
Each area of Nursing has unit or service-area councils that report to the governing councils. The councils participate in defined decision making and coordination of nursing as well as provide input through the Shared Governance process in all areas where nursing care is delivered.
Each council establishes its own goals, purpose and deliverables within the framework established by the Bylaws and the Nursing Assembly Alliance and focuses on work plans that apply logically to that council.
