Stanford Nursing Overview

Our nurses are more than the backbone of our organization. They’re bold leaders, compassionate healers, educators, and mentors, providing the everyday care to our patients and creating long-term impressions that continue to set us apart.

Magnet Recognition


The foundation for nursing practice at Stanford Health Care (SHC) is guided by the SHC Nursing Professional Practice Model (PPM), which represents all the components that constantly interact within all venues of the organization to guide and support the delivery of nursing care.

Professional Practice Model 

"A growing body of research indicates that Magnet hospitals have higher percentages of satisfied RNs, lower RN turnover and vacancy, improved clinical outcomes and improved patient satisfaction." --ANCC
