Our professional practice

Boston Medical Center (BMC) nurses have developed and adopted a professional practice model that reflects the care the nurses provide to our patients and can be found in all that we do.

Our model provides a unifying framework that captures what matters the most in our nurses’ practice: commitment to patient-centered care, our care delivery model, and shared governance.

Using the patient-centered care model, over 1,700 nurses in our system are driven to prioritize patient needs and demonstrate and deliver exceptional care, without exception on a daily basis.
