The purpose of the Nursing Division is to provide Nursing Care to all persons accessing the service in the areas of, and not limited to preventative, curative and rehabilitative care.
A dynamic committed nursing workforce leading the nation in providing quality care to individuals, families and communities through continuing education and research.
In achieving this vision, it is important that the philosophy, goals, structures, processes, procedures and interpersonal dynamics are understood and accepted, and that they are periodically adapted to ensure that they support the achievement of the vision. It is essential that all levels of Nursing Management are committed to it.
This vision should be reflected in orientation, planning, implementation and evaluation of strategies, the selection of departmental and personal objectives and the focus of the Nursing Division on a whole.
In addition, it requires that the Nurse Managers be united in their goal and support each other so that the achievement of the stated vision will be a reality.
