Philosophy

Nursing is both an art and a science, focused to assist the individual, family and/or community to achieve and sustain maximum functional abilities throughout the lifespan. Nursing is a profession which is a vibrant, dynamic, interactive and proactive process. The patient, family, and community are viewed as an integrated, holistic body that is unique, values communication, has dignity, concern, and respect. The community served is diverse in age, culture, religion, and ethnicity. Nursing incorporates scientific knowledge, critical thinking, ethical-legal decision making, and high-level technical skills to promote health, disease prevention, and disease management through the use of the nursing process.
