We are immensely proud that, as of May 2015, UVA Medical Center has achieved Magnet Recognition® status! 


UVA Nurses: Inspired, Expert Caring - we invite you to watch this short video, interviewing nine proud UVA nurses about their love of the profession and the patients and families that inspire them every day!


Our Nursing Vision: We Make the Difference! UVA nurses are leaders empowered to make the difference:

- By leading in the provision of expert, compassionate care in partnership with the patient, family and healthcare team.
- By leading innovation in the development of new nursing knowledge.
- By leading in the education of new healthcare professionals and inspiring the pursuit of lifelong learning.
- As internationally-recognized leaders for achieving the highest outcomes for our patients.
- By constantly striving to optimize the health of the local and global communities entrusted to our care.

The Professional Nursing Staff Organization (PNSO) is the shared governance structure for UVA nurses. Our Nursing Professional Practice Model (PPM) integrates all of the PNSO's core principles.

Our Nursing Care Delivery Model is Relationship-Based Care, and UVA nurses adopt an evidence-based approach to nursing practice.

UVA nurses follow these principles to achieve our Nursing Work Plan.


Thanks for Visiting!
