Nursing at Roper Hospital

The nurses at Roper Hospital are highly collaborative and use shared decision making to guide us in our mission of healing all people with compassion, faith and excellence.

Roper Hospital

Our model

Roper nurses use Kristin Swanson’s Self Care Model to promote patient health and well being.

Five Principles of Kristin Swanson’s Framework of Caring:

  1. Maintaining belief (esteem) - sustaining faith in the other’s capacity to get through an event and face a future with meaning.
  2. Knowing (empathetic understanding) - striving to understand an event as it has meaning in the life of the other.
  3. Being with (emotionally present) - being present for the other.
  4. Doing for (enact for) - doing for the other as he/she would do for oneself.
  5. Enabling (empowering) - facilitating the other’s passage through life transitions and ability to face a future with meaning.

Shared governance

The Vision for Nursing Excellence illustrates a culture focused on engagement and dedication to continuing education, patient health and well-being. The Roper Hospital Shared Governance Council works with our hospital and system-wide shared governance councils to promote excellence in nursing practice and promote compassionate service, while integrating science with care.
