Our nursing philosophy
Leading international magnet hospitals are our role models for professional nursing. Magnet hospitals are highly attractive to patients and nursing professionals and achieve the best patient results. They have no difficulty attracting and retaining nursing staff at the top of their profession. Compared to other hospitals, patients at these institutes are significantly more satisfied.
The professional nursing team at University Hospital Zurich is progressing towards magnet status step by step. For our nursing staff, that means being able to provide patients with the best possible care using state-of-the-art methods and achieving outstanding patient results. We're supported in this by an empowering management team that inspires us with regard to common values, goals and tasks.
Professional nursing requires structure and the right conditions. They form the foundation on which nursing professionals can give their best – to the benefit of all patients and in well-regulated collaboration with other professionals.
