Registered Nurse - Women's Care
The registered nurse (RN) provides and coordinates holistic care of
the patient through honoring patients' mind, body and spirit while
respecting human dignity and the uniqueness of each individual.
Professional nursing practices are rooted in evidence while being
guided by organizational policies/procedures, regulatory standards
and professional guidelines. Nursing excellence is the foundation
of the nurse-patient relationship and is exemplified by positive
patient outcomes, ongoing professional growth and development, and
collaborative relationships with other disciplines.
The RN is an exemplar for clinical excellence, professionalism,
compassion, acceptance, respect and empathy. RN clinical
proficiency is based on a sound knowledge base together with the
understanding of the theories and science of nursing practice.
Further, RN clinical decision-making incorporates the four phases
of the nursing process, critical thinking, and interdisciplinary
collaboration. As the nursing care team lead, the registered nurse
must have the ability to delegate appropriate work to patient care
techs, licensed practical nurses, unit secretaries, and students
while taking responsibility for the work delegated.
