About Us

The members of the Department of Nursing work side-by-side with physicians and other health professionals to serve the patients of Tufts Medical Center and the Floating Hospital for Children. Our department strives to fulfill its vision of exemplary practice, innovation, scholarship and leadership by providing exceptional patient-centered care, partnering with both patients and practitioners, standing at the forefront of clinical research and training the next generation of nurses. We are inspired by our guiding principles:

  • The nurse, as a partner and a leader within the healthcare team, ensures integration of care
  • Teamwork by leveraging the strengths of diverse individuals
  • A highly reliable organization that embraces professional practice and a zero defect culture
  • Shared leadership that fosters empowerment and participation by all
  • A spirit of inquiry and commitment to evidence-based practice and nursing research which contributes to the nursing community
  • Exceptional performance in quality, satisfaction and cost through accountability and transparency
  • Resolute advocacy for patients and families

Led by Chief Nursing Officer and Senior Vice President of Patient Care Services, Terry Hudson-Jinks, the department boasts a wide variety of highly skilled nurses who have been trained to work in different specialties, including adult medicine, pediatrics, critical care, surgery and more. We draw on the resources and multidisciplinary expertise afforded by our location in a major academic medical center, while providing you with the compassionate, patient-centered care you expect from a smaller community practice.
