Our Nursing Model at Swedish Medical Center

A professional practice model is a picture of how we give care for patients at Swedish. It encompasses all of the programs and processes we have in place which allow us to give excellent care everyday.

The Swedish Medical Center Professional Nurse Practice Model is best describe as a hot air balloon. In this model we have Swedish as the overarching organization, which gives us the ability and resources to provide all of the elements on the balloon:

  • Professional Nurse Practice Council
  • Caring for Each Other
  • Relationship-Based Care
  • Unit-Based Council
  • Values and Standards
  • Swedish Memorable Care

It is with these elements we are able to carry and care for the patient and family through their journey at Swedish Medical Center.
