Structural Empowerment

Structural empowerment is a framework to create an environment that promotes open communication, lifelong learning, and career advancement. Solid structures and processes developed by nurse leaders help to create an innovative environment in which strong, professional practice flourishes.

UPMC nurses receive support from leadership for career development and are empowered to use their expertise to strengthen the nursing profession and contribute to the strength of the organization.

We encourage our nurses to actively engage in the development of others, share knowledge, provide continuous feedback, and incorporate best practices to ensure continuous learning, personal satisfaction, and ultimately provide the best care possible to our patients.
