A large healthcare system was challenged to develop a nursing professional practice model that would apply to and be understood by nurses at all levels and across all entities of the organization. A team was convened, composed of direct care nurses, educators, clinical nurse specialists, Magnet program directors, managers, and directors, representing 5 hospitals, the organization institute for nursing, and system support services. The group drafted a model describing nursing across the organization. The draft model was vetted in nursing governance councils across the entity. The model includes a theoretical framework; a mission, vision, and values; elements of professional practice; internal accountabilities; and nursing outcomes. Nurses learned about the model through Web-based and face-to-face training, through participation in a professional practice model blog and group discussions.
