Nursing : The Division of Nursing offers programs leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing, a Master of Science degree in Nursing, and a School Nurse Services Credential. Course offerings evolve from a philosophical belief that nurses function to assist health care consumers to achieve positive adaptive responses which lead to optimal wellness levels.
The curricula of the Division are organized around the concept of reciprocal adaptation and the theories which relate to the changing needs of the individual, family, group and community. The faculty believes that each person is a unique, valued being who possesses intellectual, physiological, psychological, socio-cultural, and spiritual needs. The individual and the environment are in a continuous reciprocal process of change and adaptation. The nurse uses caring behaviors and the science of nursing to facilitate positive adaptive responses.
Characteristics of the professional nurse include the ability to think critically and use the problem- solving process while providing care. The nurse addresses the changing health needs of society in a manner consistent with scientific advancement, trends in health care delivery systems, and emerging legislation.
