Philosophy

Nursing education is a lifelong process that applies the concepts and theories from nursing, the humanities, and the natural and behavioral sciences.

The institution believes that an expert faculty with varied areas of expertise is required to carry out the educational mission of the college. The faculty is committed to designing and implementing curricula in which students develop critical thinking, decision-making skills, clinical judgment, cultural sensitivity, and professional nursing values in an increasingly complex health care system.We continually strive to admit and educate a diverse student body – as well as to engage a diverse faculty believing that an atmosphere that embraces diversity enhances the educational experience and provides a richer understanding of our world.We are committed to preparing our graduates to function in leadership roles and to address the political, social, ethical, economic, and policy issues that affect the design and delivery of health care in the state, the nation, and the world.

We believe faculty members work in partnership with students to facilitate achievement of each student’s educational goals. The faculty is accountable to the students served and is responsible for creating an environment that promotes free inquiry and sensitivity to diversity in ideas. Students have a responsibility to be actively involved in the education process; to identify their learning goals, needs, and styles; to become knowledgeable and skilled; to question and propose new ideas; and to use peer, faculty, college and university resources to further their own learning.We believe that learning is a continuous process. Our formal and continuing education programs encourage self-directed learning for life-long professional development, enable the assimilation of new knowledge and new technologies to create and maintain required skills, and promote understanding of the changing environments in which professional nursing is practiced.

We believe in promoting the all round development of the students with special emphasis on being intellectual, humane, psychological, cultural, moral and spiritual aspects which are required to prepare a professional nurse who will be a contributing citizen and an effective "Change agent" in our ever changing society.
