Nursing Philosophy

Nursing at Bozeman Health is practiced through patient-centered caring relationships, utilizing clinical judgment and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities and populations to promote, improve, maintain, or recover health, to cope with health problems and to achieve the best possible quality of life, whatever the disease or disability, from the beginning of life all the way through a dignified death.

Competence and critical thinking, framed in the nursing process, demonstrate the practice of nursing. The nurse will utilize each of the 6 components in the nursing process: assessment, diagnosis, outcomes identification, planning, implementation and evaluation to provide and promote a healing environment. Members of the Division of Nursing are committed to resource driven practice to accomplish evidence-based care and outcomes while working collaboratively with other health professionals.

As members of the profession of nursing, we are accountable to the role expectations that are delineated in the American Nurses Association’s (ANA) Scope and Standards of Professional Nursing Practice, the ANA Code of Ethics for Nurses and the Montana Nurse Practice Act.
