At UW Health, our approach to nursing involves establishing relationships with patients through compassionate, empathetic care. Healing occurs by meeting patients' needs - including consideration for their mind, body and spirit. The science of nursing is replete with discovery through scientific research, deploying evidence-based practices and application of theoretical frameworks to practice. The intersection of these qualities is critical to providing Remarkable Healthcare for all patients and families.
