The nursing faculty believes that professional nursing is a practice discipline with a unique body of knowledge derived from the humanities, the physical, biological, psychological, and social sciences, and from nursing science.

The goal of professional nursing is the provision of rational and humanistic healthcare in a technologically complex society which assists individuals, families, and groups to achieve, recover, or maintain optimal levels of wellness within institutional and community settings.

Central to professional nursing is the nursing process, based on the scientific method of assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation, and evaluation. As part of the interdisciplinary health care team, the nurse collaborates and coordinates with members of other health disciplines in the implementation of health care and acts as a change agent, advocate and educator for the individual, family, and community to promote wellness.

The role of research in stimulating the acquisition of new nursing knowledge and in shaping health policy for a diverse and multicultural society, is an integral part of professional nursing.
