Professional Nurse Practice Model
The Professional Nurse Practice Model (PNPM) was adopted at Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital in 2017. The model drives how we enhance patient care through a culture of caring, using the art and science of nursing throughout the hospital.
PNPM is a framework which describes our practice, structure, values, collaboration, communication and professional development. It helps drive our professional practice, advances nursing knowledge and promotes excellent patient care and outcomes.
The model integrates our nursing values with our focus on enhancing patient experience and their quality of life. It is relevant in all departments and units in which we work.
This model, as well as the associated mission, vision, values and philosophy empowers our nurses to be the best nurses they can be through leadership, shared decision-making, research, evidence-based practice, education, and clinical expertise.
