Connecticut Children’s Nursing Professional Practice Model
A Professional Practice Model (PPM) depicts how nurses practice, collaborate, communicate and develop professionally to provide the highest quality care for our patients, families and community.
Connecticut Children’s nurses have chosen a kite to illustrate the alignment and integration of the nursing practice with its mission, vision and values. A kite is designed to maneuver through gusts of wind, similar to the flexible but tenacious role of nursing which requires delivering compassionate care in today’s tumultuous health care environment.
