Philosophy

Nursing is an art and a science. The art component  incorporates interpersonal skills, and embodies certain values, beliefs and standards unique to nursing.  The science component involves the development of cognitive and technical skills required for nursing practice.  The competent beginning nurse must be proficient in both the art and science of nursing.  Both are critical for professional practice.
