About Woodview
Sentara Woodview has been an active participant in the life of the community since 1983 and is home to nearly 200 residents needing either rehabilitation or long-term care.
We recognize the importance of quality-of-life in successful aging and believe that the promotion of concepts and beliefs of wellness are critical to aging successfully. This challenges us to see the individual's health status through the eyes of wellness instead of relating it to illness or disability. This approach to promoting the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social well-being of the individual requires a collaborative effort among the resident, the family members, the community and the healthcare providers. Hence, all of these individuals become partners in promoting a high quality of care and quality of life.

The Registered Nursing (RN) is responsible to perform a competent level of nursing care as demonstrated by the critical thinking model known as the nursing process. The standards of practice (assessment, diagnosis, outcomes identification, planning, implementation, coordination of care- teaching and health promotion and evaluation) along with the standards of professional performance (ethics, culturally congruent practice, communication, collaboration, leadership, education, evidence- based practice /nursing research, quality, evaluation, resource utilization, and environmental health) encompass the actions and foundation of professional nursing. The RN possesses clinical knowledge and skills to meet standards as required by specific clinical areas.
