Rush nurses are committed to patient care and this is evident in our nursing philosophy and mission statements.

Philosophy of Nursing at Rush
Professional nursing practice promotes optimal health, wellness, and function in the individual made vulnerable through illness or healthcare encounters. Professional nursing practice is characterized by:

  • attention to the full range of human experiences and responses to health and illness
  • integration of objective data with knowledge gained from an understanding of the patient’s subjective experience
  • application of scientific knowledge to processes of nursing diagnosis and treatment
  • provision of a caring relationship that facilitates health and healing
  • leadership that is shared among the professional staff

Nursing staff integrates innovation, collaboration, accountability, respect and excellence, in providing compassionate care as set forth by Rush University Medical Center mission.

Mission
