PATIENT- & FAMILY-CENTERED CARE
Patient- and family-centered care requires more than a skill set.
It requires a mindset focused on the principles of Dignity and
Respect, Information Sharing, Participation and Collaboration.
Patients and families are encouraged to be participatory members of
the health care team - helping to make decisions about their care
or the care of a loved one.
Our nursing quality councils are based on a three-tier
infrastructure - unit level, service line level, and organizational
level. Each level escalates to the next, allowing for strong
communication and collaboration between quality councils, as well
as within and between the service lines. Within the councils,
nurses formulate their practice questions, conduct literature
reviews, review research articles, and create quality improvement
projects geared to the specific needs of their patients.
Anne Arundel Medical Center makes career growth and advancement a
priority for our nurses. We have a formal clinical ladder program
and clinical ladder coaches who can help you assess your goals and
guide you through the portfolio and application process. We also
offer financial aid and scholarship opportunities, along with
in-house seminars, workshops and access to continuing education
