Championing innovation, excellence and exceptional patient care

Integrating evidence-based patient care validated by inquiry and research through collaboration with physician colleagues is the key tenet of the Department of Nursing at Montefiore-Einstein.

To truly achieve this, nurses at all levels have been continuously defining and refining our mission and core values. Their tremendous efforts supported the creation of our strategic plan, philosophy and professional practice model, all of which underscore how nursing contributes to Montefiore-Einstein’s mission and goals.

Our model is grounded in patient- and family-centered care, upheld by our core values, and enriched by our historical foundation. It reminds us to lead with compassion, exemplary evidence-based practice, a spirit of innovation and inquiry, empowerment, autonomy and accountability.
