Our Nursing VisionWe 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.
