The School of Nursing is a learning community that builds on a foundation of liberal arts, humanities, and sciences to develop clinical skills and judgment required to practice professional nursing.
Faculty believe in student success. The faculty believe that students are responsible for their own learning with faculty to facilitate the learning process. Faculty are committed to providing an environment which assists students to reach their potential, promote intellectual interest, critical thinking, development of professional values, and a commitment to life-long learning.
Within a milieu of mutual respect, students and faculty participate collaboratively in a venture of inquiry and investigation, learning, creativity, and service. Faculty are responsible for designing and implementing teaching strategies that help facilitate students' learning.
Evaluation of the student performance is a continuous process and utilizes established criteria.
Student success is promoted by supportive faculty advisement, remedial work, and/or referral to counseling services. Faculty enhance the learning process by maintaining current knowledge in the discipline of nursing and integrating research and service into nursing education.
