Professional Nurse Practice Model
The Henry Ford Hospital Professional Nurse Practice Model (PNPM) was developed in 2015. The model drives how we provide patient care throughout the hospital.
PNPM is a framework describing our practice, structure, values, collaboration, communication and professional development. It helps to drive our professional practice, advances nursing knowledge and promotes excellent patient care and outcomes.
The model provides us with a unification that focuses us on enhancing the patient’s quality of life. It is relevant in all departments and units in which we work.
PNPM was created by a workgroup of clinical nurses and leadership throughout the hospital. This model, as well as the associated mission, vision, values and philosophy was approved by approximately 1,400 nursing staff.
