Program description
The purpose of nursing education is to provide reality-based preparation for safe practice founded on a sound knowledge of the physical, life, social and nursing sciences, critical thinking, caring, ethical/legal principles, and technical skills. The faculty members function as facilitators, expert co-learners, role models, and mentors in a variety of settings. Effective nursing education is based on a climate of mutual trust and respect between student and faculty. Opportunities for integration and application of theoretical concepts occur through an alliance between faculty, students, and clinicians in classroom and clinical settings. Students need guidance in learning and using the nursing process, and encouragement to develop integrity, responsibility, accountability, resourcefulness, and a holistic approach to meeting the needs of clients and working within the health care system. Nursing is a vital part of the community. It is the responsibility of this faculty to prepare competent practitioners to assist in meeting the health care needs of the community. The nursing program adheres to the principles of workforce education, which has as its goal to prepare persons for jobs that contribute to the welfare of the student and the community. The community college nursing program, as a part of the career ladder within the discipline of nursing, prepares persons for work as certified nursing assistants, licensed practical nurses, and registered nurses. The faculty believes in and values life-long learning. It is the faculty's responsibility to facilitate articulation with nursing education programs offering baccalaureate and higher degrees and to encourage students and graduates to seek higher education in the discipline.
