Professional Practice Model

As part of the Mount Sinai Health System, Mount Sinai South Nassau aligns with the system Professional Practice Model (PPM) Relationship Centered Care (RCC). Our PPM is a dynamic system which supports registered nurse control over the delivery of nursing care and the environment in which care is delivered. Subsystems of the PPM include core values, professional relationships, the patient care delivery model, leadership/governance structures, and recognition and reward.
