The College of Nursing faculty believes that nursing is a professional discipline with academic and practice dimensions, and that the program prepares generalists for practice at the baccalaureate level. The College of Nursing faculty also believes that the program prepares professional nurse leaders to be good stewards of the profession, managing patient care in a variety of healthcare contexts through the advocacy of compassionate, evidence-based, relationship-centered, interprofessional team-based care to enhance and sustain health and healing. These core faculty beliefs are the context in which the curricular foundations of the AACN Baccalaureate Essentials and QSEN framework are realized in the College of Nursing BS program.
