Nursing leadership’s mission is “to provide high-value nursing services and to enhance the professional conduct and autonomous practice of its members." Our professional practice of nursing is based upon the philosophical tenets, values and guiding principles of Community Health Network, as well as those outlined by professional nursing organizations. This strong mission for nursing enables us to effectively support the network’s mission: “With caring and compassion we continually strive to improve the health and well-being of those individuals in Central Indiana who entrust their care to us.”
