World-Class Nursing Care at Ohio State’s Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute
The OSUCCC – James Professional Practice Model (PPM) was inspired by the ancient mandala. Traditional mandalas function as intricate maps, presenting the viewer with a journey from the periphery to the center. We designed this mandala to guide our practice as individual oncology nurses and as a community of James nurses. It portrays the beauty, captures the emotion and illuminates the essence of oncology nursing at The James.
The OSUCCC – James Nursing Professional Practice Model artistically portrays how our vision, mission, philosophy and value statements come to life. It reminds us that the profession of nursing has a core set of values, an identified body of knowledge, autonomous decision-making, peer feedback and peer review of practice and professional organizations for setting standards. Our PPM affirms our sense of professionalism and our commitment to excellence.
Our Professional Practice Model Core Components – detailed below and throughout these web pages – illuminate our commitment to excellence.
