Philosophy of Nursing

EvergreenHealth Nurses developed our Professional Practice Model through a Philosophy of Nursing based on Jean Watson’s Humanistic Caring Theory and Patient and Family Centered Care. We embrace our values holding patients and families at the center of our care.

Professional Development

EvergreenHealth offers a variety of programs and assistance to support the professional development of its nursing staff including:

  • Experienced nursing hires all receive a basic orientation.
  • Experienced nurses coming to work in a new field would receive the basic orientation plus classes and mentoring in the new field.
  • Experienced nurses coming to acute hospital care from a skilled nursing or an office/clinic setting would receive the basic orientation with an extended mentoring program where the new hire is paired with a seasoned nurse. During the program, the new nurse is trained, attends classes and learns by example on the unit.
  • The Nursing Students Program allows students to work as nursing technicians, functioning to the level of their training. This allows students to grow in knowledge and experience as they move forward through school.
  • The RN Residency Program is designed to assist the new or refresher RN in the transition from a novice practitioner to an independent, professional patient care provider.
  • Monthly free in-service and continuing education programs are offered on current topics.
  • The tuition reimbursement program provides assistance to those employees who are pursuing degrees and certificates relevant to their work at EvergreenHealth.
