Philosophy of the Department of Nursing

The philosophy of the Department of Nursing encompasses the faculty’s beliefs about the concepts of education, nursing, persons, environment, and health, and provides a framework for the nursing curriculum of the undergraduate and graduate programs.  The programs encourage students to be active participants in their own education and in lifelong learning.  Emphasize the importance of inter-subjective relationships to professional development as well as self-development and self-awareness.  Ensure that students are committed to the ethical care and nurturing of well and ill people, individually and in groups, and that professional nurses are self-directed, skilled in oral and written communications, accountable for their actions and able to make sound decisions and formulate independent judgments.
