Allied Health/Nursing

Mission Statement

To prepare educated, competent, ethical, and professional nurses who provide scientifically-based, compassionate nursing care for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of diverse individuals within the community. The nursing program supports the general vision, values and mission of Mountain View College by preparing NCLEX ready graduates who will positively impact the community.


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 life span. 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 use of the nursing process.
