Mission Statement

The Mission of the Department of Nursing is to provide professional nursing education at the undergraduate level that develops and supports a learner-centered environment that ignites a spirit of inquiry and a commitment to lifelong learning and reflective practice. The program supports active engagement in multiple ways of knowing, while integrating nursing knowledge, related sciences, and the humanities to refine nursing practice. Through the intentional use of transformational experiences across the curriculum, the development of professional and personal identity in the ways of knowing and being is emphasized. In this way, the Nursing Department supports the College mission of preparing each student for a life characterized by integrity, intellectual and spiritual values, social responsibility and service — a life that is worthy of the college’s motto: Esse non videri — "To be, not to seem."
