School of Nursing Philosophy

We believe professional nursing is an interactive, caring process based on knowledge attained from nursing research, nursing theory, professional nursing values, the arts, sciences, and humanities. Professional nurses assume leadership roles in health promotion and maintenance, disease prevention, illness management, and end-of-life care. Nurses are responsible for the delivery of effective, high-quality patient care in collaboration with other health care professionals.
