Why we do what we do.
You’d have to be crazy to walk five miles of hallways, work 12 hours, eat lunch at 3 a.m., be there with patients on their worst days and look forward to doing it all again tomorrow. But that’s the level of caring Vidant nurses bring to their jobs each and every day. And they’ll tell you they’d have to be crazy to do anything else. Caring isn’t just something Vidant’s nurses do. It’s who they are. It’s also the reason why Vidant nurses have been so highly awarded for their contributions to the profession.
The Vidant Health Nursing Professional Practice Model is based on Dr. Kristen Swanson’s Theory of Caring and anchored by the Vidant Health values. This model provides nurses at Vidant principles for daily care of patients and interaction with team members. Patients and families are at the heart of all we do and caring is the work we do.
