About the Program
With an understanding that all individuals have worth and potential, we are committed to student learning and success. Using personal interaction, rigorous instruction and innovative technologies, we strive to provide high quality, accessible nursing education that prepares a safe, competent nurse who is committed to compassion, critical thinking and lifelong learning.
The nursing faculty views a client as a holistic being in a continuous state of development. The client may be the individual, family, or groups with a common purpose. Each client possesses intrinsic worth, unique needs, abilities, rights, and is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect. It is the right of the client to make decisions to achieve an optimal level of health.
