Nursing excellence is vital - for patients, of course, and for nurses. It is with this guiding principle that a new partnership has grown from the shared mission of the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) and the UMSON.
The partnership, called University of Maryland Nursing, has been created with a vision to optimize patient outcomes by enhancing nursing practice.
