4 Accountability Nursing Values As professional individuals, we are accountable to ourselves, our patients and families, our colleagues and our community. We are responsible for managing a healthy work-life balance and demonstrating integrity and professional ethics in all of our interactions.

We pride ourselves on incorporating professional standards and values that form the foundation of the professional into our practice. We uphold the policies and standards of the organization, and contribute to the organization’s outstanding image in the community.
5 Respect Nursing Values Continued Nurses work collaboratively within a multidisciplinary team, recognizing and respecting each member’s contribution. Recognizing each other’s strengths and unique qualities, nurses create a collaborative, respectful environment for care delivery. We incorporate the principles of the Nursing Code of Ethics into our practice, which encourages effective communication and mutual respect between the patient, family and multidisciplinary team members. We recognize professional and personal boundaries as we strive to respectfully meet the unique needs of our patients and families.
6 Teamwork Nursing Values Continued Nurses work as part of highly functioning, collaborative, multi-disciplinary teams. As members of these teams they are expected to participate in rounds, and provide valued contributions to the care team’s decision making process. Nurses facilitate inclusion of the family into the care team. By respecting the knowledge of our families and colleagues and drawing from the strengths of a wide range of team member expertise, we are able to deliver care at the highest possible level. All new tam members are welcomed, supported and mentored into full team participation.

Nurses provide culturally competent and developmentally appropriate care. We purposely create and sustain diverse teams as a strategy that reflects organizational strength.

Our ethical code requires equitable treatment of all, without regard for ability to pay and with regard for diversity. Patient safety is our first priority. Care is based on current evidence and professional practice standards. Models of care delivery are selected based on needs of specific patient populations.
