Our Nursing Philosophy
CHRISTUS Good Shepherd’s nurses are committed to the vision of CHRISTUS Health, a Catholic health ministry, which is to be a leader, a partner and an advocate in the creation of innovative health and wellness solutions that improve the lives of individuals and communities so that all may experience God's healing presence and love. Our seamless continuum of care is consistent with the organization’s mission, vision and core values.
Our Focus on Collaborative Care
Since the 1990s our Professional Practice Model, “The Collaborative Care Model,” has continued to change over time to adapt to global issues in nursing and health care. Our model defines and describes the delivery of caring for the whole person; mind, body and soul. And this approach allows us to extend our care to the patient’s family and community.
