Nursing education is a lifelong process that applies the concepts and theories from nursing, the humanities, and the natural and behavioral sciences.The institution believes that an expert faculty with varied areas of expertise is required to carry out the educational mission of the college.The faculty is committed to designing and implementing curricula in which students develop critical thinking, decision-making skills, clinical judgment, cultural sensitivity, and professional nursing values in an increasingly complex health care system.We continually strive to admit and educate a diverse student body as well as to engage a diverse faculty believing that an atmosphere that embraces diversity enhances the educational experience and provides a richer understanding of our world.

We are committed to prepare our graduates to function in leadership roles and to address the political, social, ethical, economic, and policy issues that affect the design and delivery of health care in the state, the nation, and the world.
