OUR MISSION: To fulfill President Lincoln's promise - "To care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow, and his orphan" - by serving and honoring the men and women who are America's Veterans.

The RN is a key member of the multidisciplinary team. The RN is responsible for patient advocacy and collaboration with other team members, promoting effective communication, and ethical practice. The RN functions within their scope of practice to provide high quality direct patient care to patients at various stages of life. The RN facilitates communication among licensed and unlicensed staff, the physician, the Veteran, his/her family, and other department personnel, as needed. The RN, in collaboration with patient and family members, builds an educational plan that meets their educational needs. The RN provides rehabilitative, restorative and supportive/bereavement nursing care to prevent deterioration when possible, to achieve and maintain optimal levels of functioning, independence and comfort, maximizing the Veterans' ability to adapt and adjust to living as independently and safely as possible. The RN provides ongoing bereavement support, recognizing each Veteran's desire for autonomy and their right to dignified care throughout the end-of-life process.
