Our Philosophy


Akron Children's believes that professional nursing practice addresses the healthcare needs of individuals, families and communities.

Our philosophy describes the core elements of nursing, patient/family, environment and health, and serves as the foundation of the family-centered professional practice model.

Nursing is a health-focused, human relationship. It is a learned, humanistic art and science that focuses on personalized (individual and group) care behaviors, functions and processes, directed toward helping people attain, maintain or regain optimal health.

Specifically, it is the diagnosis and treatment of human responses to actual or potential health problems.
