A diversity in both nursing staff and patient population defines the 4 Bles experience. Nurses on 4 Bles pride themselves on the culturally competent care they provide. Their professional experience, broad perspective on health care delivery and excellent communication skills ensure that patients from anywhere in the world receive excellent care. The nursing practice is complex with multisystem diagnoses creating a challenging context for planning and delivering expert nursing care. Our nurses collaborate with professionals of many disciplines and are key contributors to patient outcomes. The nurses of 4 Bles thrive on the challenge of this practice environment which motivates them to continue to develop as professional nurses. The unit educator and Nurse manager team facilitate this ongoing professional development through support, coaching and mentoring.
