Our Vision and Philosophy
The Nursing vision at Yale New Haven Hospital is to achieve excellence through continuous improvements and innovation. This vision inspires a culture that sets new standards for patient care, constantly strives to improve employee and patient satisfaction, ensures better patient care outcomes, and fosters a positive, collaborative working environment—where everyone works together toward a common goal, and all employees are valued for their individual contributions and commitment.
Yale New Haven Hospital is among approximately seven percent of all hospitals nationwide - and one of only six in Connecticut - to achieve the prestigious Magnet designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. This recognition reflects how we empower nursing staff, our culture of safety, the quality of nursing practices, and the best practices nurses discover and share to deliver safe patient care. Most importantly, our Magnet designation demonstrates the hard work and dedication of Yale New Haven nurses at all levels.
As a hospital and a nursing team, we’re extremely proud of our Magnet designation. We continue to advance nursing excellence by examining and revising our current practice to ensure exceptional patient outcomes, fostering the professional development of every nurse and keeping the patient at the center of all care.
We invite you to explore a nursing career in an internationally acclaimed research and academic medical center.
