Nursing by the 6 C's

Nurses are the backbone of healthcare, providing a critical foundation of expertise, compassion, and dedication that is essential to the functioning of the entire healthcare system. The nursing profession is firmly rooted in a solid foundation of core values that empower nurses to make a profound and meaningful impact on the lives of their patients. These core values serve as a constant reminder of the significance of their role.

In a world where healthcare is constantly evolving and becoming increasingly complex, the role of nurses has never been more crucial. Their commitment to their patients, their profession, and their core values is what sets them apart and makes them an indispensable part of the healthcare team.

Introducing the 6 C's


Care is at the core of what nurses do and the care they deliver helps to improve the health of our entire community. 


The relationships that nurse build with their patients are based on empathy, respect and dignity. 


Courage enables nurses to make the right choices throughout their career and do what’s best for their patients. It’s up to nurses to speak out if they have concerns and have the personal strength to easily adapt to each new environment and overcome any challenge that is thrown at them.


Communication is essential to a nurse’s success, as it enables them to build caring relationships with their patients and work well with their colleagues as part of a team. 


Nurses have a commitment to their patients and this helps them take the necessary steps to improving the quality of care they receive.


Competence means that those in a caring role must have the natural ability to understand their patient’s health and social needs and have the relevant expertise, clinical, and technical knowledge to deliver effective care.
