    Dr. Baldwin's philosophy of nursing is based on the self-care modeling and role-modeling theory by Erickson, Tomlin, and Swain, whereby the nurse unconditionally accepts the patient, nurtures them, and helps facilitate care with them. This is also the theory that Dr. Baldwin utilizes and applies in working with nursing students.
