Neuroscience Nursing

The Neuroscience nursing team cares for patients with a wide range of neurological conditions, including chronic, medically complex cases. They benefit from the broad array of treatments offered by our Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery. We offer some of the most advanced treatments available to resolve or manage conditions ranging from neurovascular disease, neurotumors, neurospine disorders, brain attack, MS, and Alzheimer's disease, to chronic pain, sleep disorders and migraines.

The Neuroscience Nursing Division provides a continuum of care including intensive care, intermediate care and acute care units, as well as an area for specialty epilepsy monitoring.

Our nursing staff uses Relationship Based Care (RBC) as our care delivery model. In RBC, the rapport between the nurse, patient and family is a critical part of the patient care experience. Our goal is to create a healing environment that is best achieved when we know what matters most to each of you. Our nursing staff focuses on patient safety and providing a high quality of care for patients. The patient and family are included in every step of the journey to recovery.

The environment is one of a kind, where talents and ideas come together to enhance care and heal. The Neuroscience Division embraces an interdisciplinary team approach to care for our patients and families. Just as our organization is recognized for its world-class specialties and leading-edge technologies and treatments, we're respected for our innovation and highly skilled care our professionals bring to the medical center each day.

In 2009, the University of Maryland Medical Center was recognized for its nursing excellence and achieved Magnet Designation. The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) awards Magnet status to hospitals that meet specific criteria for the highest standards in patient care, nursing professionalism, and teamwork. Our Magnet Designation places us among the top tier of hospitals world-wide.

We take pride in our exemplary professional nursing practice and promote a shared-governance environment. Transformational leadership allows our nurses to stay ahead of the demands of our healthcare future. They are empowered to be creative, innovative and are committed to work together to identify best practices which make a difference in providing quality healthcare.
