Nursing Mission, Vision & Philosophy

Nursing Mission 

We, the community of nurses, support the mission of Genesis through our intentional presence in all we do.

We demonstrate excellence in clinical care by our commitment to evidence-based practice, quality outcomes, and the delivery of culturally competent patient care in a caring-healing environment.

We promote innovation in clinical practice, programs, and technology through active participation in decision-making and research.

We provide a compassionate and respectful environment for all members of our community through our Professional Practice Model, and patient- and family-centered care.

We recognize leadership exists at every level from the bedside to the boardroom.


Nursing Vision 

We will conscientiously integrate evidence-based practice and research into clinical and operational processes by being innovative and establishing new ways of achieving high quality, outcomes. 

We will promote an environment that stimulates, motivates and inspires nurses to both achieve extraordinary outcomes and develop their own leadership capacity. 

We will have a professional practice environment that uses multiple strategies to create structures and processes that support a lifelong learning culture that includes professional collaboration and the promotion of role development, academic achievement and career advancement.


Nursing Philosophy

Reflective of the Genesis mission, vision, and values, our Department of Nursing philosophy centers on the basic beliefs concerning the key concepts of nursing: person, environment and health. Caring relationships, compassion and evidence-based practice serve as the foundation of nursing care at Genesis. Care is seamless and consistent throughout the health system resulting in a safe, healing environment, leading to excellent outcomes.

We believe care decisions must be made in collaboration with the patient and family and respect the inherent dignity and worth of all, unrestricted by considerations of culture, social or economic status, personal attributes, or nature of health problems.

We believe interdisciplinary teams of health professionals working cohesively with patients and families are the most effective and efficient means for achieving the best possible outcomes.

We believe professional nursing is both an art and science-based discipline possessing a unique body of knowledge.

We believe that nursing “owning” their own practice leads to commitment, competence in performance, improved communication skills, and life-long learning, which are crucial to the practice of nursing.

We believe nurses have the right, authority and legislative responsibility to make independent patient care decisions while practicing to the full scope of nursing practice, and whenever possible these decisions should be made at the point of care.

We believe in nursing taking an active role in the selection, implementation, and execution of technology solutions for patient care to enhance patient safety and maximize efficiency.


All new employees will receive a one-day general hospital orientation to assist both the experienced and inexperienced employees to provide successful integration into the work setting. During this initial phase of orientation, the focus is on general hospital introduction and orientation to benefits, policies, mandatory education, infection control, culture, strategic goals and mission, vision and values.

Clinical Staff Orientation

All clinical staff including registered nurses, unit assistants and certified nursing assistants receive an additional day of interactive training which includes orientation to:

  • Safety First
  • Patient Experience and Satisfaction
  • Infection Control, Hand washing, Isolation
  • Fall Prevention
  • Skin & Pressure Injury Protection

Nursing Staff Orientation

The registered nursing staff orientation consists of two additional days of interactive learning, competency development and simulation.  Topics include:

Select RNs also have the option to attend a Dedicated Learning Unit Orientation for several weeks with advanced preceptors who provide expert knowledge and development in the medical-surgical patient care areas.

Unit Orientation

New nurses are then oriented to the specialized unit and l work with an assigned Preceptor for several weeks. The length of this training will be dependent upon the nurse's position, experience level, and assigned unit(s). Specialty areas will require additional training. The focus of the unit orientation is unit-specific competencies and to provide the nurse with patient care opportunities that enable them to demonstrate competence. Intermittent orientation meetings are conducted with a clinical educator, manager and preceptor throughout orientation to review competencies and set goals.


The nursing preceptor at Genesis plays a significant role in the competency development and job satisfaction of the new nursing employee.
