Brightest minds in nursing

Kaiser Permanente nurses advance the delivery of compassionate care to our members across the continuum and transform care to improve the health of our communities.

Our nurses promote the art and science of nursing in a patient-centered, healing environment and truly embody what total care means.

The Kaiser Permanente Nursing Professional Practice Model is at the heart of our nursing practice, and it serves as a framework to standardize our approach to care. It honors the unity of the whole human being – mind, body, spirit – and is the lens through which Kaiser Permanente nurses look to ensure that they meet the needs of our patients and their families.

The Kaiser Permanente Nursing Professional Practice Model

Our mission

Extraordinary nursing care.

Every patient.

Every time.

Our vision

As leaders, clinicians, researchers, innovators, and scientists, Kaiser Permanente nurses are advancing the delivery of excellent, compassionate care for our members across the continuum, and boldly transforming care to improve the health of our communities and nation.

Our values

Professionalism, patient and family-centric, compassion, teamwork, excellence, and integrity

Shared governance

Kaiser Permanente’s professional governance program aligns our Nursing Professional Practice Model with our Model of Operational Excellence and ensures the consistency of nursing practice and exceptional quality of care for our members. The program also lays the foundation that makes transformational practice possible and aligns nursing with Kaiser Permanente’s mission. 

This program represents a decision-making partnership between leadership, frontline nurses, and other interdisciplinary team members where changes are made to policies and practice founded on evidenced-based research and common core values. It provides greater nursing autonomy and promotes accountability and shared responsibility for improving patient outcomes, optimizing efficiency, and increasing nurse engagement.

Diversity and inclusion

The nurse-patient/family relationship is the cornerstone of our nursing practice and leverages the powerful role human relationships play in creating caring and healing environments. Providing high-quality, culturally responsive care so our members can achieve the best possible health outcomes is central to our nursing mission. Our nurses play an essential role in addressing inequities and disparities in health outcomes by providing culturally responsive, equitable care for all our members.

Our Mobile Health Vehicle offers a means for our nurses to work throughout the region, providing care to those in all the communities that we serve.
