provide exceptional care

Professional Practice Model

At Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital, we believe high-quality patient care is only possible through teamwork. It’s both nurses and support staff working together efficiently that makes it all work.

Like the majestic trees in the neighboring Arnold Arboretum, our nurses flourish with the strength gained from their support system. The registered nurses, technicians, secretaries, medical assistants, mental health workers, unit service technicians and patient care assistants all come together to form the root system that allows our nurses to do their jobs properly. With this support, they are able to focus on patient and family centered care delivered with compassion, dignity and respect.

Our nurses collaborate with a strong interdisciplinary team to support patients and families and incorporate principles of evidence based practice, accountability, communication, shared governance, advocacy, lifelong learning, integrity and pursuit of excellence into the practice of nursing.
