The Nursing Professional Practice Models (PPM) at UCLA Health System are powerful schematic descriptions that outline how nurses practice, collaborate, communicate, and develop professionally to provide the highest quality care to those served in our Health System.
In 2011, The UCLA Health System Department of Nursing began a strategic initiative to further inspire and strengthen the professional role competency of all registered nurses that practice in the health system. This initiative will continue over the next 5 years, as part of Nursing's strategic plan to ensure UCLA nurses are well positioned to impact the effectiveness, efficiency, and quality of care in the quest to improve outcomes for patients. By strengthening role competency, UCLA Nurses will continue to be positioned to lead healthcare improvement locally, nationally, and internationally.
