School of Nursing

School of Nursing

The faculty of the School of Nursing believes that the practice of professional nursing rests upon a sound arts and science foundation that prepares graduates to excel in a diverse, rapidly changing, and technologically oriented society. Faculty members serve as guides, mentors, role models, and facilitators for students to synthesize the roles and responsibilities of the scope of nursing practice. Integrated and conceptually based curricula are built upon the principles of communication, critical thinking, cultural-connectedness, health promotion, and adherence to professional and ethical standards of practice, which form the foundation for knowledge and skills essential for nursing professionals. Teaching and learning activities are keystones of the curricula and occur within caring, interdisciplinary and environmentally sensitive settings.
